National Kahlua Day


February 27th is National Kahlua Day. Yeah, it’s a thing. Kahlua was created in 1936 by chemist Montalvo Lara. It means “House of the Acolhua people.” Lara used coffee beans from the fields of Veracruz, which were grown by a pair of brothers, the Alvarez. In the 1950’s, Kahlua became popular and began global distribution. It wasn’t until the 1960’s though, that it hit North America, and of course, the U.S. fell in love with its creamy and distinctive Mexican flavored goodness. From there, it grew and grew. Since 2007, Kahlua joined the flavor craze and added flavors like french vanilla, hazelnut, mocha, gingerbread, peppermint, pumpkin spiced and salted caramel. Facts courtesy of Kahlua.
