“Scott Baird, the mixologist at 15 Romolo's recipe makes kahlua with more flavor, thicker and richer by adding dark rum to vodka or light rum as well as whole coffee beans before filtering. It takes a full 3 weeks so start now if its for christmas gifts :) He suggests using Pampero rum for the dark, but any good dark will do. Standing time of 3 weeks is not included”
