Kahlua Day

I occasionally use Kahlua in my coffee to give it a little kick.  A couple of classic beverages using Kahlua (which is a coffee liqueur and rum) are a Black Russian and the Mudslide.  These 2 drinks only have a couple of ingredients. The Black Russian is Kahlua and vodka over ice while a Mudslide uses Irish Cream, Kahlua and chocolate syrup.  Have a great Kahlua Day by spicing up your coffee or making one of these tasty beverages.

This rich liquor is a Mexican cocktail which is greatly enjoyed around the world and so it should be no great surprise that loyal aficionados of the delicious liquid have created a day to celebrate such a tempting beverage. And rightfully so!

 

The History of Kahlua Day

The origins of Kahlua can be traced back to its invention in 1936 by a man named Pedro Domecq, who combined rum, vanilla and corn syrup and coffee to create one of the world’s most popular liqueurs. The name of the alcohol is derived from that of a mesoamerican tribe that had inhabited Mexico Valley since long before the Spaniards arrived. Known at first only in the surrounding areas of its creator, Kahlua’s popularity has indeed spread throughout the world. Now, it is enjoyed in various forms by countless millions across the globe.
