Setting You Up For Holiday Success

Introducing New Kahlua(R) Mocha

TORONTO, Nov. 23 /CNW/ - Just in time for the Holidays, Kahlua(R) is introducing a new flavour to its family of premium liqueurs - Mocha. The same premium taste you can expect from the original Kahlua coffee liqueur, but with a delicious dark chocolate twist.

The new Mocha flavour is a natural complement to the premium coffee flavour of Kahlua that is perfect for the Holiday season. Kahlua Mocha is made from a blend of 100 per cent Arabica coffee, natural vanilla and real dark chocolate made from the finest cocoa beans. It's sure to have your guests asking for your cocktail recipes.

"Kahlua Mocha is a delicious variation of the original Kahlua flavour that we know Canadians will love," says Kirsten Devitt, Senior Brand Manager, Corby distilleries. "The deep caramel colour, bittersweet chocolate and stunningly rich and soft texture give Kahlua Mocha the luscious flavour perfectly suited to any holiday occasion."

Kahlua is more versatile than you may think. Many of the cocktails Kahlua is used in are not what you would expect. The Paralyzer, for example, is a West Coast tradition that involves mixing Kahlua with cola, milk and vodka. Kahlua Mocha is no exception to the rule - from a Kahlua Mochatini, which is made with vodka, to the Kahlua Mocha Wedge made with lime - the Kahlua family of flavours has a cocktail for everyone.

"Kahlua Mocha makes a great addition to your home bar for holiday entertaining since it is so versatile and therefore has something to offer so many different preferences," says Devitt. "No matter what time of day, or who the guests are, Kahlua is guaranteed to deliver a premium, rich flavour consumers will love - and plus who doesn't crave chocolate?"

Kahlua is the No. 1 Coffee Liqueur in the world as well as Canada. Its family of flavours includes original, Hazelnut, French Vanilla and now, of course, Mocha.
