Kahlua; a simple concoction of vodka, water, coffee and sugar cane. If you made some homemade Kahlua using our delicious recipe, you know that the addition of a Beanilla vanilla bean made this liquor even more delicious!!! Kahlua is definitely a popular liquor to pour over ice and leisurely sip on after dinner. Did you know that you can utilize this liquor in a variety of desserts and baked goods?! One of my very favorite pairings is with chocolate. Simply add a small amount to chocolate ice cream bases, drizzle into your favorite mousse recipe or make a batch of chocolate Kahlua cookies!
Kahlua has a rich cultural heritage with roots deeply entwined in the Latino culture. Created in the early 1930’s the liquor is often used in celebrations. The liquor originated in Veracruz where coffee beans are hand harvested, then roasted and ground. The grounds are then used to make a very strong coffee base. Sugar cane is processed and extracted and then combined with liquor and the strong coffee. The result is a slightly sweet, coffee based liquor.
Chocolate Kahlua cookies are the perfect combination of rich dark chocolate, creamy coffee filling and just hint of decadent Mexican vanilla extract. Our Mexican vanilla extract is rich and bold with a hint of spice. Mexican vanilla extract brings out the inherent flavors of the chocolate and enhance the coffee notes in the Kahlua. If you have never tried our Mexican vanilla extract this recipe is the perfect excuse!
