Colorful Cocktails: Kahlua Frappe
On National Coffee Day, we want to celebrate coffee the best way we can imagine- cocktails! Really though- what would we do without our daily cup of joe? We depend on it to give us the strength to face the day. Our work days are split into coffee breaks with our peers. Our weekends are held together by long conversations over a full mug or grabbing a massive coffee to go before a new adventure. We drink it all day, every day. It’s delicious, after all. Coffee has found its way into our lives as a necessity. Thankfully, there is a great way for us to appreciate the uber-important beverage that fuels our hearts, minds, and bodies. Our recipe is a boozy frappe will transport you to a decadent dessert paradise! The best thing about frappes is how they taste, but the second best thing is how easy they are to change up. Our personal favorite is this version: a no-frills recipe that takes you straight to flavor town. But feel free to get a little crazy. You could try a salted caramel version, like this recipe from The Cook Craft Love blog. It’s a lush retreat into a frozen paradise of french vanilla and creamy caramel. Add extra chocolate syrup in with the Kahlua and bring some mocha madness to your mouth. Drinkwire lays out a whole list of amazing frappe recipes(amazing as in… Pumpkin Spice Frappe!) Add Kahlua and voila… cocktails!
Take “treat yourself” to the next level: Blend up a batch and grab a paintbrush! You and your friends seriously deserve an icy pitcher of frappe cocktails. Happy National Coffee Day, Twisters!
