HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT KAHLÚA AND CREAM
Kahlúa and Cream FAQ

What does the Kahlúa and cream taste like? 

Imagine a sweet, velvety coffee cloud with a boozy twist. It’s like dessert in a glass! Creamy and dreamy, with that rich coffee flavour of Kahlúa, it’s an indulgent treat.

How long does it take to make the Kahlúa and cream? 

Blink and you’ll miss it! Seriously, it takes about 2 minutes. Just pour Kahlúa over ice, add your cream, give it a stir, and boom — your delicious cocktail is ready.

What cream works best? Can I use plant-based cream?

Heavy cream or half-and-half will give you that luscious texture, but plant-based creams like almond, oat, or coconut are totally cool too. They might change the flavour a bit, but still in a good way!

What is the difference between Kahlúa and Cream and the White Russian? 

Think of a White Russian as Kahlúa and cream’s slightly stronger cousin. It has an extra splash of vodka for that added kick. Otherwise, they’re pretty similar in their creamy coffee goodness.

When is the best time to drink the Kahlúa and Cream?

Anytime you need a little pick-me-up with a side of relaxation. It’s perfect after dinner, for a chill evening with friends, or when you just want to treat yourself.

Can Kahlúa and Cream be served hot?

Sure, why not? Heat up the cream (but don’t boil it), pour it over the Kahlúa, and you’ve got a cozy, warm version. It’s like a hug in a mug.

Can I substitute milk for cream in a Kahlúa and cream cocktail?

Absolutely! Milk will make it lighter and less rich, but it still tastes great, like in our Kahlúa Sombrero drink; you’ll find the recipe here.

Can I make a non-alcoholic version of the Kahlúa and cream cocktail?

You bet! Swap out Kahlúa for coffee syrup or a coffee-flavoured drink. You’ll still get that yummy coffee and cream vibe but without the alcohol.

What are some garnishes for a Kahlúa and cream cocktail?

Jazz it up any way you like! A sprinkle of cocoa powder, grated chocolate, a cinnamon stick, a coffee bean or two. They add a little flair and extra flavour.

Is a Kahlúa and cream cocktail gluten-free?

Good news! Kahlúa is gluten-free, and if you use a gluten-free cream, you’re all set. Just double-check any plant-based creams to make sure.
