- 1/3 Kahlua (or Tia Maria)
- 1 house vodka
Mixing Method: Build
- Build in a chilled rock glass.
- Scoop the glass 3/4 full with ice.
- Pour the ingredients over the ice.
- Serve with a straw, or swizzle stick.
Kahlua is a complex balance of coffee, caramel and vanilla flavors. Tia Maria is strong, sweet, black coffee flavor. So if substituting Tia Maria for Kahlua, it’s still a pleasant drink, but it won’t have the same complexity, or depth of flavor.
