Iced coffee is what you need after a hot sweaty day to give you that refreshing taste, doing it with Kahlúa, a coffee-flavored liqueur from Mexico is even better.
You’ll generally need three things for these kahlua iced coffee recipes, the kahlúa liqueur which you can get from your coffee store, coffee and iced cubes.
You can make your coffee with a French press or other coffee makers you can get your hands on. You should allow your coffee to cool a bit before adding the cubes because adding the cubes to hot coffee will melt the cubes too fast.
It’s better to get coffee cubes and not just water cubes so that there’ll be no change in the taste of your drink as the iced cubes melt in the drink.
It’s not difficult to make coffee cubes, just get a silicon ice cube tray (so you’ll get your cubes off easily) and fill it up with brewed coffee at room temperature and place in the freezer.
It’ll take a few hours to become ice but you’ll have enough to use for as many cups of coffee.
So look at these Kahlúa cocktail recipes that hit those taste buds and are quick to make too:
1. Irish Coffee
You’ll need 0.75-ounce bailey Irish cream, 0.75 ounce kahlúa and 4 ounces hot coffee for this recipe.

You can add whipped cream and serve.
2. Kahlúa Chocolate Chip Cookie Milkshake

Blend all these ingredients until you get a smooth feel from your brew but you can leave small pieces of cookie in the cup.
Add the remaining five ice cubes in the cup and stir.
3. Baileys & Kahlua iced coffee Shake
Use 8 ounces of chocolate milk, 2 cups of vanilla ice cream, 4 cups of strong Coffee, ½ cup of Kahlua, ½ cup of Baileys Irish Cream and whipped cream or chocolate Syrup as garnish for your ingredients.
Get the chocolate milk and freeze using ice cube trays as you’ll need this in your blend.
Now blend everything till you get a smooth cream. You can top with whipped cream or chocolate syrup.

1.5 oz vodka and 1.5 oz Kahlúa.

7. kahlua iced coffee Hot White Russian
