Thirsty Thursday: Limited Edition Holiday Drinks w/ Kahlua #HolidayGiftGuide

This time of year definitely can keep us all pretty busy and on our toes. Not only are some of us adjusting to the colder weather, but we're also preparing for lots of holiday dinners, gatherings and parties. Whether it's with family, friends or co-workers, one thing I think we can all agree on around this time of year is a nice warm beverage to help keep us warm.

I think you know by now how much I love hosting parties, entertaining others and serving up delicious beverages. Last week I was sent a lovely gift basket from the wonderful folks over at Kahlua. They sent me over both of their Limited Edition Peppermint Mocha and the new Gingerbread drinks, just in time for this holiday season. That's why this week's Thirsty Thursday is not one, but two drinks that include both the Peppermint and Gingerbread Kahlua.

First off before making a drink with both of these drinks, I decided to taste them before mixing them in with other ingredients. This was my first time trying either and I absolutely loved them. The Peppermint Mocha Kahlua gives you both a minty and chocolate taste that makes you think of Christmas. I love that neither the peppermint or chocolate was too powerful, they were both perfectly blended.

The Gingerbread Kahlua was definitely a great surprise that included nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and ginger with a hint of clove that tasted amazing. It definitely reminded me of the holidays. The taste alone was very smooth and full of flavor and got me excited to want to try it in my coffee.

You can get both the Peppermint Mocha and Gingerbread Kahlua's at your local LCBO, get them before they're off the shelves. They retail for around $16.20, a perfect gift to give a host, friend or family member during this holiday season. Check out both drinks below and the recipes that I had a chance to make over the weekend. Enjoy!
