Chocolate Kahlua Cannabis Cupcakes
Bundle up my friends! It’s that time of year where scarves and gloves start coming out of hiding, and we can enjoy the best of the season like Chocolate Kahlua Cannabis Cupcakes.
Do you love pouring Kahlua over ice? In coffee? How about in martini glasses?
One of the best parts about colder weather is finding ways to stay warm (wink, wink) and this is one of my favorite ways!
Where Does Kahlua Come From?
Kahlua was first made in Mexico where sugar, rum, vanilla bean, and arabica coffee all made friends and created this spectacular drink.
The name comes from the Arabic language which is supposedly slang for coffee.
Did you know? It takes up to seven years to produce a bottle of Kahlua and then another year to distill the spirits in the coffee and infuse the flavors.
I guess the saying is true! “Good things come to those who wait!”
Kahlua is an alcoholic-infused, coffee beverage that goes perfect in coffee, martinis, and today? Cupcakes!
