Kahlua has launched a brand-new flavor, Kahlua Blonde Roast Style. The new expression from the Pernod Ricard-owned brand features a hint of citrus as well as a lighter roast, making it ideal for creating cocktails.
Kahlua Blonde Roast Style is made with medium roast coffee and hints of caramel, toffee and citrus flavors. The new expression offers a distinctive coffee and rum aroma ideal for whipping up delicious, flavorful cocktails for anytime of year.
“As the world’s number one coffee liqueur, Kahlúa is always tapping into coffee culture trends and looking for ways to inspire coffee lovers at their next brunch or after-work hangout,” said Troy Gorczyca, U.S. Brand Director at Kahlúa. “Plus, we are known to make delicious coffee cocktails and this taps into the growing trends around more light coffee cocktails, so Kahlua Blonde Roast Style was a natural next step for us as a brand.”
Already available at various locations nationwide, Kahlua Blonde Roast Style comes in at 20% ABV and can be purchased for $19.99. The brand recommends serving the liqueur with tonic or coconut water. Though, we’re certainly going to give it a shot in a White Russian first thing.
Back in July, Kahlua released a Nitro Cold Brew canned cocktail. Made with rum, Kahlúa coffee liqueur, and 100% Arabica cold brew coffee that has been steeped for at least 18 hours, Kahlua Nitro Cold Brew gives fans an opportunity to enjoy the liqueur on the go. The canned coffee hard beverage is delivered by a nitrogen-filled widget technology right in the can to create a smooth, refreshing taste and can be poured in fewer than three seconds, according to the company. The Nitro Cold Brew is not the brand’s first entrance into the ready to drink marketplace, as a couple years back they introduced an Espresso Martini.
