How to make Kahlua in the Instant Pot.
This Instant Pot Kahlua recipe may not be the same as the one Pedro Domecq produced in 1936, but it’s pretty darn good.
Kahlua means “House of the Acolhua people” in a language long ago, however, against my lips it means “This stuff is good!”
There are so many delicious ways to use this recipe.
Try it in a glass with ice and a touch of cream.
Mix it with coffee or cocoa.
Use it as a topping for ice cream, cakes, cheesecakes, and more.
We made a huge batch.
Then I created labels and we gifted them as Christmas presents for my family’s “Homemade Christmas” gift. It was a big hit!
This Kahlua will still improve as it rests in the bottle.
Remember to give it a little shake before pouring in your glass.
Please drink responsibly.
Raise a Glass to these Kahlua Fun Facts:
Kahlua was exported to the United States in 1940.
If you want a reason to celebrate, February 27th is National Kahlua Day.
Globally, the most popular Kahlua is the Black Russian.
Legend has it that the Black Russian was invented in 1948 by Brussels’ Hotel Metropoles bartender Gustave Tops, in honor of the US Ambassador of Luxembourg, Perle Mestas.
Two million cases a year, in 150 countries around the world, of Kahlua are consumed.
In the 60s Kahlúa was well-known and gained press attention due to it being led by an entirely female team known as the Kahlua Ladies.
The White Russian is the drink The Dude drank in the movie, The Big Lebowski.
The B52 soared to popularity in the 1970s when a Canadian bartender at the Banff Springs Hotel created the drink.
It’s also an ingredient in some pretty spectacular tasting drinks:
