Mexican sunset over the mountains

After several hours not to mention days of rain the weather finally cleared just before sunset this evening & we caught a spectacular sunset. Great night for a Kahlua drink~cold of course since it is summer. Be virtuous & eat a salad then splurge & have a decadent cold drink!
Kahlua is a coffee liqueur made from Mexican coffee, sugar cane spirits and a bit of Mexican vanilla.
Kahlua is the 2nd largest single liqueur brand worldwide. Although it wasn't introduced to America until 1962, it's history dates to pre-WWII. When in Rome....Okay Torreon chicas, how about that Martini Tour???? By the way~it's raining again!!!

Espresso Martini
1 oz cold espresso
1 1/2 oz vodka
1 1/2 oz Kahlua coffee liqueur
1 oz white creme de cacao

Pour ingredients into shaker filled with ice, shake vigorously, and strain into chilled martini glass. It should be somewhat frothy.

I always loved both Kahlua and Creme de cacao best of all alcoholic drinks! Kahlua and cream! Never thought of mixing the two. I'd like to try that by itself without the vodka. I like sugar best!

Beautiful pictures, but I'm not the biggest fan of flavored martninis!
