When me and my mate decided to have a few drinks last weekend she turned up with a bottle of Kahlua which I've seen before but have never tasted. It's a coffee liqueur like Tia Maria but has a better flavour and I don't think it's as sweet as Tia Maria and that's good because that drink makes me feel sick sometimes.
We had ours with coke to start with and then my mate told me about a cocktail recipe she had heard where you mix Kahlua with vanilla vodka and cold milk. I had got a bottle of vanilla vodka so we tried it like that and it was yummy and very creamy tasting.
The Kahlua on its own is wicked and tastes quite strong of coffee and it's good because it doesn't taste too alcoholic because I don't always like the taste of strong spirit drinks. I enjoyed trying it with all different mixers because it was fun and it was weird the way the Kahlua tasted so different with the different things you put in it but the coffee flavour was still always there.
The drink is a bit sweet but not too much and it goes great with loads of different mixers. I tried it with sparkling water and ice cubes and that was a lovely refreshing drink that seemed to be loads lighter than other ways I had drunk Kahlua.
The bottle is dead nice as well and reminds me of the Aztecs for some reason because of the shape of it and the bright yellow label. It looks a dead posh drinks and I was a bit surprised when my mate said this bottle only cost £13.00 because I thought it would have been more expensive than that. The alcohol volume is 20% so it's quite strong but it goes down so smooth and easy that it doesn't feel like you're drinking anything too strong.
The problem with that is that it will get you drunk before you know it and even though I didn't get off my head I still had quite a bad hangover and headache the next morning but that was nothing a Sausage McMuffin couldn't solve!
