History of National Kahlua Day
The origin and history of National Kahlua Day are still unknown. Pedro Domecq produced Kahlua in the year 1936. Then the company combined with Allied Lyons in the year 1994 forming Allied Domecq. In the year 2005, Allied Domecq was partly obtained by Pernod Ricard which merged with the Swedish Vin & Spirit, i.e. V & S Group in March 2008. Kahlua is made with rum, sugar, vanilla, corn syrup and Mexican coffee. As it is made from coffee and rum, it contains caffeine. People enjoy having Kahlua either straight up or on the rocks. Kahlua can also be mixed with desserts like ice cream, cheesecakes, and cakes; it can also be combined with coffee and other cocktails like the B-52, Mudslide, White Russian etc.
