If you like coffee, then you will like this cocktail. Even though its name is dirty apple cocktail, nothing dirty here. Only Kahlua (coffee liqueur), apple juice and cream. If you like cold coffees, then this nice change for you.
I bought Kahlua to make tiramisu or to bake some cake, cheesecake or make ice cream with it. It has been in Drinks cabinet for a while. Finally, I decide to make cocktail with it, as it is Friday today. I am die hard coffee fan. My days starts with coffee and ends with it if possible. Earlier I used to drink more black coffee in between. Now it has been reduced only two one in the morning and one in the evening.
Normally many people sip Kahlua by itself over ice after dinner, it is the star ingredient in several popular mixed drinks. You can create a variety of cocktails using this delicious liqueur. I was looking for 3 ingredient cocktails with Kahlua thus made this one.
Do you know Kahlua is a dark liquid without the creaminess of Baileys? They both taste of coffee, but Kahlua is much stronger. I didn’t add any vodka, or Tequila along with Kahlua while making this cocktail. Just coffee liqueur, cream and apple juice. I was skeptical about mixing coffee flavor with apple juice. Trust the coffee flavor is strongest here, so I can feel only just hint of sweetness from the apple juice.
You don’t want extra booze just a simple drink after dinner or lunch go and make this one. You will love just to like us. Give it try after it is coffee and cream.
Let me know you loved your Dirty apple cocktail. What your favorite cocktail with Kahlua? I will be making few of the classic cocktail with it.
