A kahlua coffee is basically an Irish coffee with kahlua instead of whiskey. Since kahlua is already coffee flavored it goes fabulously well in coffee!
And topped with some delicious whipped coconut cream and some grated dark chocolate this is a seriously good drink!
Kahlua is already quite sweet so adding it to the coffee already provides some sweetness, but I found that adding a teaspoon of brown sugar to each glass before adding the cream made it the perfect sweetness.
But this is a personal preference thing so just taste test it before adding any sugar in case it’s just right as it is.
Making these kahlua coffees could not be easier! It’s just a case of making some filter coffee and then adding it to wine glasses along with a shot (per glass) of kahlua.
Spoon some whipped coconut cream over the top (plain, not sweetened) and then add some grated dark chocolate to the top for decoration.
You get the nice kick from the caffeine along with the pleasant buzz from the kahlua and all in the most delicious drink!
