Thursday Drink Night brings out the creative, the complex, and the all out crazy when mixologists and home bar enthusiasts gather together in the Mixoloseum chat room. Kahlúa, the famed coffee liqueur, sponsored Thursday Drink Night on May 20 and we had a great number of drink recipes submitted for the accompanying Kahlúa Brunch Drink Challenge. You can read more of the challenge here and see other submissions I’ve posted on here.
Many thanks go out to Fred and Keith for participating in the Kahlúa TDN and for sharing their Kahlúa inspirations on their own blogs – just maybe we’ll see one of their concoctions featured at Tales in July!
