Kahlua Cinnamon Spice reviewAs we originally about Kahlúa Cinnamon Spice, we are now reviewing it on BourbonBlog.com.

It was inspired by the traditional Mexican Coffee “Café de Olla” – which blends coffee, cinnamon, brown sugar (piloncillo), and is served in an ‘olla’ a traditional earthenware.

Quite lovely on the rocks and perfect for holiday cocktails like the ones listed below. The cinnamon spice tastes more authentic with the real cinnamon flavors than many liqueurs and spirits.
