Available late September.

NEW PRODUCT: Bols Foam

A truly innovative approach to drink presentation, Bols Foam creates new sensations by enhancing the creative potential of Bols Liqueurs. Our crafty Bols Foam bottle transforms the liqueur inside into instant foam, which quite literally adds a new dimension to any cocktail, coffee or dessert.

There are a total of six foams – Amaretto, Cassis, Blue ( think triple sec) are the first arrivals to select US states.  They also have Peppermint (maybe a deconstructed mojito), Cacao White and Banana.

Each 200-mL bottle comes with a pump that will turn the liquid into two liters of frothy foam that it claims will hold for at least 15 minutes.

The suggested retail price of Bols’ new foams is $17.99 and you can now find them in select states.

I LOVE KAHLUA!!!  But as I am writing this I see an empty bottle in the trash. Sad face.

Thursday, February 27th is National Kahlua Day

Celebrate the day with a great treat – add to your favorite cheesecake or serve over a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Tiramisu anymore?

Cocktails

Kahlua + Vodka = Black Russian

Kahlua + Vodka + cream = White Russian

Kahlua + Vodka + coffee = Kahlua Martini

Kahlua + vodka + espresso = Espresso Martini

But now for my personal favorite…

Roasted Apple,1.5 oz Vodka, 1 oz Kahula, Fill pint glass with Stella Artois Cidre

From Wikipedia:  Kahlúa is a Mexican coffee-flavored rum-based liqueur. It is dense and sweet, with the distinct taste of coffee, from which it is made. Kahlúa also contains sugar, corn syrup and vanilla bean. Pedro Domecq began producing Kahlúa in 1936. It was named Kahlúa, meaning “House of the Acolhua people” in the Veracruz Nahuatl language spoken before the Spanish Conquest.
