The splash of soda also gives this drink a special taste. You would never guess the secret is Coca Cola.
What is Kahlua?
Go to any bar and you’ll find a bottle of Kahlua. This is because it’s one of the world’s most popular coffee liqueurs. But, very few people know that Kahlua, a key ingredient in a White Russian cocktail, actually originates from Mexico.
Kahlua is a wonderful combination of coffee, rum, corn syrup, and vanilla beans (another traditional Mexican ingredient). It’s a sweet, rich, coffee-flavored liqueur that’s perfect for an after-dinner drink. Learn how to make homemade Kahlua.
