    I bought this because I saw a recipe calling for it. The recipe was with chocolate pudding. It was fabulous. Of course I had to sample the Kahlua first. Will definitely be purchasing more

    The first time I bought this was many years ago and I was not in the US. It was so good that I spent months trying to find it again in the US. So glad that we can buy it here now!

    Very good tasting. Makes cocktails pop more than regular Kahlua.

    Don't judge me, but I do actually love adding a bit of this into my coffee ON THE WEEKENDS.

    I love to sit down in the evening and relax with a glass of Kahlúa and cream. It relaxes me and I love the taste of this alcohol. My husband makes me a great drink with it. He also puts a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg on top.

    I think it's important to have a well stocked home bar, especially during a lockdown. I think it's important to enjoy life and make the best of any situation, which is why I keep this in stock. You never know when you want the perfect cocktail that calls for coffee liqueur so just keep this on hand. It is great to have in cocktails or add to coffee, cocoa, a latte, or just to have on ice.

    This is overpriced and store brands are the exact same as this name brand. I personally don't care for this but some people like it in their mixed drinks



Coffee liqueur is fairly self-explanatory: it’s coffee and alcohol mixed together! However, people have come to expect certain things from coffee liqueur, including a somewhat sweet flavor to balance out the sharp tang of the alcohol and coffee. Commercial brands of coffee liqueur include Kahlua and Tia Maria.
To make your own coffee liqueur, start by cold brewing ¼ cup of fine-ground espresso with 1-¼ cups of water in a glass jar. Combine 1 cup of turbinado sugar with 1 cup of water and bring the mixture to a boil, then remove it from the heat and let it cool to room temperature. Finally, add this cooled syrup to your cold coffee, along with 1 vanilla bean (don’t worry, you’ll remove it at the end) and 1-½ cups of light rum, letting the mixture sit for 3 days. Or, save the headache and order it on Drizly.
Yes, Kahlúa is a coffee liqueur that originated in Mexico in the year 1936. Kahlúa has become one of the most popular coffee liqueurs on earth and sports a caramel color and a rich, deep flavor. It is made with real black coffee, sweet butter and roasted chestnuts.
Technically, Baileys is an Irish cream liqueur. The brand does offer a coffee-flavored version of their liqueur that hits the spot for many coffee liqueur lovers, but it is still technically not a coffee liqueur. Baileys sports its characteristic taste thanks to flavorings of cocoa, Irish whiskey and real Irish milk cream.
