Few can resist being seduced by this popular liqueur made from Mexican coffee, and many include it in their list of gifts to bring back home. We asked two of Puerto Vallarta’s most innovative bartenders to create fresh new drinks using Kahlua as the centerpiece. Try them at home. But while in Puerto Vallarta, pamper yourself with these exclusive signature cocktails at two of the hottest restaurants in town.


1-1/2 oz. Kahlua
1 oz. chocolate vodka
1/2 oz. vanilla vodka
1/2 oz. espresso coffee
1/2 oz. Baileys Irish Cream

Pour Kahlua into a martini glass. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously. Pour over Kahlua and serve.

Cocktail Vitea

2 oz. Kahlua
1/2 oz. kiwi liqueur
1/2 oz. sloe gin
Orange juice

Pour Kahlua into a tulip glass. Add orange juice to taste. Float the kiwi liqueur and sloe gin. Garnish with a lime wedge and a maraschino cherry.
