Kahlua Drinks

Looking for Kahlua drinks? Kahlua is a popular brand of coffee liqueur that is made using Arabica coffee beans and sugarcane spirits. It has a slightly bitter taste when enjoyed on its own (much like coffee), but can be very delicious when used in various cocktails.

Black Russian The Black Russian is a well known cocktail. It got its name because the Kahlua gives the drink a dark color, and vodka is a traditionally Russian alcohol. For a lighter variation, cream, milk or half-and-half can be added, for a creamier beverage.

  • One part vodka
  • Ice
