Kahlúa and Fernet: A Lip Smacking Combo

If there was one ingredient I was excited to see in the Kahlúa-sponsored Thursday Drink Night (well, besides the Kahlúa, duh…) it would have to be the appearance of Fernet Branca. Yes, Fernet, that bitter Italian digestif, has a soft spot in my heart.

Here are a few more submissions for the Kahlúa Brunch Drink Challenge that spurred from the Mixoloseum chat room, capitalizing on the Kahlúa-Fernet duo. Maybe you’ll see one of these tipples featured at the Kahlúa Coffee Bar during Tales of the Cocktails! You’ll have to come by and find out.
