Upon arriving back into the office this week I noticed that I had quite the jump in my traffic over the weekend, as made available from the handy WordPress stats. Inquiring minds need to know: what caused the traffic spike? While I’d like to imagine that the few of you readers out there not named My Mother felt compelled enough to share my clever wit and writing style on this blog amongst your friends (cough cough!), I delved a bit deeper into the WordPress statistics…
I quickly discovered that “Kahlúa” and many of this site’s previous blog posts with Kahlúa cocktails happened to be the major trend. And then – it clicked! In addition to Sunday being a night to pay homage to Hollywood’s greats at The Oscars, it was also a night to pay homage to that most “delicoso” treat from Veracruz, Mexico. That’s right, I totally missed that Sunday was National Kahlúa Day.
So now to offer those readers coming for Kahlúa recipes a little something in return for visiting me here at Cocktail Culture – RECIPES! However, I am going to defer from the “delicioso” website offerings and the more-than-expected White Russian, and offer some cocktails with more imaginative uses for the liqueur that combines 100% Arabica coffee and sugarcane.
