Liqueur used in Coffee[edit]

A liqueur is an alcoholic drink with syrup qualities containing additives that sweeten and flavor the beverage. There is a category of liqueur called coffee liqueur that was first produced in the 16th century. Throughout the years, coffee liqueurs have been made with a variety of additives and types of alcohol, although it generally has a rum base with coffee and vanilla flavorings.[2] Some of its core ingredients include roasted coffee beans and their powder, sugar (white or brown), vanilla syrup, espresso, and alcohol. The roasted coffee is steeped along with the sugar and other ingredients in the alcohol to produce the coffee liqueur. One of the most popular coffee liqueurs is Kahlua, which has been manufactured in Mexico since 1936.[3][4]
