TDN Kahlúa Cream Wrap-Up

Kahlua brings back lots of memories of my early days of drinking, and it was a treat to get to work with a soon-to-be-released ingredient. We had a live contingent at Malo in LA consisting of Marleigh and Dan, Chuck, Matt, and a whole host of other cocktail fanatics. And many of the best drinks of the night came from the city of angels.

  1. […] Kahlua Coffee Cream Liqueur Kahlua is one of the best known liqueur brands out there today, of course. They are introducing a new special run liqueur they call Kahlua Coffee Cream. You won’t find it on their website, since it is a limited-edition product, but you should expect to find it on shelves all over the US through the end of the year. Everything Kahlua makes is coffee-based, of course, as is the new Coffee Cream. It is a cream liqueur along the lines of a Bailey’s or Castries. The base spirit is rum, and subtly brings the characteristic taste elements of that spirit to the party as well. My initial thought before tasting was, Isn’t this a White Russian? It is not. Kahlua actually produces pre-bottled White Russians as well, but even if you roll your own, White Russians are thinner in taste and texture, as well as higher in proof, than the Kahlua Coffee Cream. The taste of the Coffee Cream is similar to an unflavored ice cream custard base. There are vanilla tones, as well as prominent flavors of caramelized sugar. The coffee is there, but not very in your face. For non-coffee drinkers like me, it is a beautiful balance. Imagine if you will, a sip of liquid Tiramisu, and you will have great idea of what you get in a bottle of the Coffee Cream. As I said above, this liqueur is simply a great after dinner drink, served by itself on the rocks. If you simply must use it as an ingredient, I’ll send you to the wrap-up of the recent Thursday Drink Night, where the gang did a great job putting Kahlua Coffee Cream through its paces. […]
