This winter's hottest fashion accessory comes in a glass

       Kahlua(R) is the new black. Fashion Stylist David Clemmer reveals how
               the drink you choose reflects your fashion style

    TORONTO, Nov. 28 /CNW/ - Kahlua(R), the exotic coffee liquor with
mystical Yucatan heritage, is the ultimate high-fashion indulgence. Just like
the 'it' bag or a luxury watch, dark drinks are the hottest fashion accessory
this season.
    "The drink you order is just as important as the shoes you wear," says
stylist David Clemmer. "A dark drink is the perfect fashion accessory to
complement this season's style of dark silhouettes and close fitting clothing.
Choosing a dark-coloured drink sends a clear message about who you are and
what you're up to. It says confident and sophisticated, and hints at something
    As the winter nights get colder and longer, fashions naturally shift to
deeper and darker looks. "The right drink will add instant sophistication to
any outfit," says Clemmer. "Most people don't really think about it, but when
you are sharing a drink with friends at home or in a bar you rarely notice
anything below the belt. The drink you're holding in your hand spends most of
the night within view - making it an accessory that shouldn't be chosen
    Kahlua(R) has worked with innovative mixologist Brad Gubbins, from the
Toronto Institute of Bartending, to create new twists on classic cocktails
that reflect the new trend towards dark drinks. These high-fashion concoctions
are sure to add a new level of sophistication to your cocktail repertoire and
make a great addition to at home holiday gatherings and impromptu
get-togethers after work.
    "The classic Black Russian is my go-to-drink," says Clemmer. "It's bold,
dark and confident and I can hold it comfortably all night. If I'm feeling a
little adventurous, I might order the new French Cocktail - a mixture of
Martell(R) Cognac, Kahlua(R) French Vanilla and lime juice. It's an
unexpected, confident choice and a surprisingly refreshing drink. It's
guaranteed to add a little 'je ne sais quoi' to the evening."
    The Kahlua(R) Espresso Martini, made with freshly brewed espresso is
another great drink to punch up your cocktail menu. Simple to make, this
sophisticated cocktail is a great choice to serve at your holiday gatherings
with friends. "Making a drink this stylish at home will take your party to the
next level and wow your friends," say Clemmer.

    Kahlua(R) adds two new flavours

    The Kahlua(R) family just got bigger with the introduction of two new
flavours: Kahlua(R) French Vanilla and Kahlua(R) Hazelnut. Unique twists on
the classic Kahlua(R) taste, the rich and smooth flavours add subtle
sophistication to classic Kahlua(R) recipes.
    The Original Kahlua(R) is available at liquor stores across Canada and
retails between $27.00 and $30.00 for 750ml (prices may vary by province). New
