NATIONAL KAHLUA DAY
February 27th recognizes National Kahlúa Day. This day was created as a day for those, over the age of 21, to enjoy this creamy, rich alcoholic liqueur. To celebrate, you may want to use Kahlua, a coffee-flavored rum-based liquor, to flavor your ice cream or another dessert such as cheesecake or cake. It also tastes great in coffee, hot chocolate, creamy cocktails, as a shot or on the rocks.
Pedro Domecq began producing Kahlúa in 1936. In 1994, the company merged with Allied Lyons forming Allied Domecq. In 2005, Allied Domecq was partially acquired by Pernod Ricard which merged with the Swedish Vin & Sprit (V & S Group) in March of 2008.
Kahlúa is made from coffee and rum, so it does contain caffeine. Kahlúa is found to be used in a few notable cocktails, including the following:
- Baby Guinness
- Black Russian
- White Russian
- Espresso Martini
- Caribbean Mudslide
