At this past week’s Tales of the Cocktail, Kahlúa Coffee Liqueur hosted the daily coffee bar, complete with baristas and bartenders. This year, Kahlúa held a contest in the Mixolosuem to find their featured “brunch” cocktail. After rigorous testing at a NYC bar, Kaiser Penguin, Rick Stutz’s creation, the Black Paloma, was chosen the winner. A fresh, crisp combination of tequila, Kahlúa, lime juice, and grapefruit juice, this one sure opened my eyes after arriving in New Orleans after a long night of flying. If you were at Tales this year, what was your favorite?


  • 1 ½ parts blanco tequila
  • 1 ½ parts Kahlúa coffee liqueur
  • ¾ part fresh lime juice
  • ½ part fresh grapefruit juice
  • Pinch salt
  • Club soda


Fill a collins glass with ice and add the tequila, Kahlúa, salt, and juices. Top it off with club soda.
