The year was 1936. The setting was Mexico. The players were Senior Blanco, Montalvo Lara, and the Alvarez brothers. The result was Kahlua. And for that, we are all grateful. This roundup celebrates the coffee liquor in all of its glory – from a Kahlua Chocolate Martini to Chocolate Chip Kahlua Cookies – and for that we are also grateful because, as you probably guessed, at Sweatpants and Coffee, if coffee is mentioned, we’re totally here for it. Enjoy!

10. No-Bake Chocolate Kahlua Cheesecake from My Evil Twin’s Kitchen

From the website: This thing was absolutely decadent: it was fresh, creamy and velvety. Its smooth, unctuous texture felt like a soft caress inside your mouth. As for its flavor, it really kept you coming back for more: it had a very pleasant tang to it, thanks to the presence of sour cream, and a very intense but not overwhelmingly sweet chocolate flavor.
