Kahlúa Irish Midnight Lullabye

It goes without saying that gift giving can be difficult. What do you get for Uncle Fred, or your mother, who already has everything she could ever want?

Or what about the neighbors when they stop by last minute to bring you a holiday gift and you don’t have one for them?

Kahlúa makes a great gift all on it’s own.

With all the wonderful flavors: Original, Mocha, French Vanilla, Hazelnut and Peppermint Mocha, along with the strong coffee version, Especial, there is something for everyone on your list.

It’s so easy to pick a bottle, pop it in a gift bag, tie a bow, add a tag and call it done. Easy and it’s a great gift!

However, there are other ways to get creative:

  • Put together a Kahlúa gift basket, add glasses, a bottle of any flavor of Kahlúa and some nuts and chocolates.

  • Make cookies using Kahlúa – there are so many flavors you can make them unique

  • Make chocolate sauce with Kahlúa and store in mason jars. Create an ice cream social gift basket, with spoons, sundae cups, a gift card to the local grocer for some ice cream. Nestle in some sprinkles, nuts and other toppings. Don’t forget to add your chocolate sauce.

  • Make brownies or a cake with Kahlúa and keep it on hand (check out the recipe below) for unexpected house guests or last minute gifts. Wrap in parchment paper and tie with string, pop into a gift bag and you have an easy gift.

  • If you’re looking for a great brownie recipe, try these Kahlua Peppermint Mocha Brownies!

But that’s not all, I also have a wonderful Kahlúa cocktail recipe for you again today.

This Kahlua Irish Midnight Lullaby is one of my favorites to serve at the end of the night before house guests head off to bed.

The perfect lullaby to end the night at an Irish Midnight. That’s where it got it’s name, well, that and that Irish Whiskey we use!
