  2. Kahlua

    Kahlua Ice Cream: pour 2 tablespoons Kahlua over a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream

    Kahlua Smoothie: in blender, blend 1 big scoop vanilla ice cream, ¼ cup Kahlua and ¼ cup heavy cream (enough to thin out the drink to your preference and taste)

    Colorado Bulldog: ½ cup Kahlua, ½ cup milk or cream, 1 shot of vodka, 1 shot of coke; serve over ice

    Kahlua Spiked Coffee: add a shot of Kahlua to your cup of coffee; add some cream, if desired

    Vanilla Russian: ¼ cup Kahlua, ¼ cup cream, 1 shot of vanilla-flavored vodka; serve over ice (or use regular flavored vodka to make a traditional White Russian)

    Polar Bear: mix equal amounts of Kahlua, vodka, and heavy cream; serve over ice

    Kahlua Frosting: Use Kahlua instead of milk to make white frosting – good on chocolate cake!

    Kahlua Icebox (good after dinner drink!): Fill a blender about ¾ full of a good vanilla or vanilla bean ice cream (this is good with chocolate ice cream, too) – blend in ¼ cup Kahlua and ¼ cup good bourbon. This drink should be thick enough to serve in a cocktail or wine glass (fun in margarita glasses, too) with a spoon. As it melts, you can just slurp the rest right out of the glass!
