Way back in Mexico during the year 1936, a chemist by the name of Senor Bianco began a drink revolution when he added coffee beans to a liqueur recipe and created the reason for today’s holiday, Kahlua. The official induction of National Kahlua Day is a little hazy, but since its introduction to the United States in the 1960’s, Americans have fallen in love with the liqueur’s creamy, delightful taste.
The rich, coffee liqueur goes great in coffee (go figure) and hot cocoa for a nice after dinner treat for your customers. Kahlua has also become a main ingredient of many classic cocktails such as White Russians and Mudslides. They are called ‘classic’ for a reason; people like them, so serve some up at your bar on National Kahlua Day! You can either shake the classics up and go with the Kahlua Black Russian recipe below.
