Kahlua Iced Coffee Review – It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere

Jen and I are good friends but polar opposites on some things. While we both have a definite love for blogging, our lives are very different:

Jen lives in Minnesota. – I hate the snow.

Jen and Jason have one son. – My partner and I have three daughters.

Jen is a carnivore. – I’m a vegetarian.

Jen has three dogs, named JD, Kahlua, and Bailey – I’ve only tasted alcohol a handful of times in my life.

I could go on and on! One thing we can agree on, however, is that Kahlua Iced Coffee is freakin’ amazing! Jen and I were in Chicago together for BBSummit a week or two ago (time flies!), and she busted out these cans of iced coffee. She knows I’m a coffee freak, so I grabbed the mocha and told her I’d save it for my train ride. I arrived at the train station at 8AM and started drinking my coffee. The person to my left kind of gnarled her face at me, while the person to my right just smirked. I was confused as to why I was getting these looks, but the coffee was awesome so I just chugged it and minded my own business.

I got up to put my can in the recycling container when I saw “5% alcohol” towards the bottom of the can. Not sure how I missed that earlier, but I was puzzled because Jen didn’t mention it had alcohol in it. I know what you are thinking, “Kahlua is alcohol, duh?”. It didn’t taste like alcohol, and it didn’t smell like alcohol. It tasted like wonderfully delicious iced coffee! It’s 5 O’clock somewhere, right?

I love that the Kahlua Iced Coffee has only 150 calories, so I don’t have to worry about it messing up my weight loss plan. What I also really love is that when I go to buy this, if I’m lucky, I’ll get asked for my ID. Instant confidence booster! My favorite flavor is the Iced Mocha, but I think the Iced Espresso is a close second. There is also a flavor called Cinnamon Spice that would be perfect for Fall. Another idea I had (after I drank them of course) was to mix them up with ice in the blender and add some whip cream on top. Kind of like a DIY frappe’ for a fraction of the cost.

Even if you don’t drink alcohol, I recommend trying these Kahlua Iced Coffee drinks because they not only taste good, they’re refreshing as well!


  1. Mmmm sounds yummy! I have never heard of an alcoholic coffee iced drink before!

  2. Love the post and I confess… Love Kahlua. I am a 4-5 pot of coffee a day type of gal and will have to try these. LOL

  3. This is one of the many reasons I adore both of you. 😀

  4. So is this what we will be having in our fridge for the conference??? Good post

  5. Those sound so good and I am seriously LMAO at the photos of Jen!

  6. Great, another thing to add to my coffee and kahlua obsessions!

  7. Ha, ha love the photos. That Kahlua iced coffee sounds yummy. I love iced coffee, so why not have one with a little special sauce in it too!

    This is Hilarious! Jen you bad girl you! Sounds like something I would accidentally on purpose do to one of my girlfriends haha!

  9. I bet your train ride was better than usual 😉

  10. You should drink more often. It’s seriously amazing.


  11. What a lush Sadie! Drinking at 8am! 🙂

  12. Yum – all these flavors look good, but I’d try Cinnamon Spice first!

  13. I have the perfect whipped cream to top them…it’s called “Whipped Lightning” yum!! Put that on your coffee and it’ll look pretty innocent. Operative word: Look. 🙂 And yes, Kahlua is delicious!

  14. LOL Hilarious story! I don’t see why anyone would give you looks when it’s only 5% alcohol!

    • I know, right? They had to be right up in my business to see what it was anyway LOL. But, in their defense, it WAS only 8AM (if that), and I probably would’ve looked at them the same way had they been drinking alcohol of any type. 😉

  15. This was HILARIOUS! Nom nom Bacon!

  16. This is soooo funny. But I love kahlua too – it’s like coffee chocolate.

  17. Yum! That sounds delish! My daughter used to work at Compari’s Italian Restaurant in Plano, TX & they serve an amazing alcoholic coffee drink that they made with Godiva chocolate liqueur and Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur, add some cream & sugar & it is to D I E for!!! And this combo would probably also make an amazing frozen frappucino!

    They sound so good!

  19. Michelle F. says:

    Those look really good. Can’t wait to find them at my local supermarket.

  20. Uh oh, sounds like your hooked and never mind that the people on the train think your a lush. I’ll have to find some of these.

  21. haha this is funny

  22. Tracy L. says:

    Mmmmm, Kahlua iced coffee! Funny pictures, btw.

  23. Okay, first of all, this is hilarious! If I weren’t pregnant I could totally go for a caffeine + alcohol morning buzz, LOL. And you know, there are things like Bloody Marys, Mimosas and Bellinis… People drink those in the morning and they’re totally acceptable and there isn’t even any coffee to pick you up in them. 😉

  24. Thanks for sharing!! Sounds great! You are funny for sure!!!

  25. the only Kahlua I have ever had was mixed with a little cream and topped with whipped cream. If these taste anything like that I am in!! 🙂

  26. I have not tried this but I love the taste of Kahlua and I generally don’t drink. I need this!

  27. Cool pics! 🙂 I would love to try the Iced Mocha. Thanks for sharing!!

  28. Never knew there was such a thing til your post. Thanks.

  29. 5% alcohol huh. Lol. These flavors sound great. I’m a huge coffee addict so I’d love to get my hands on one of these drinks soon. Would be a nice pick me up haha xD

  30. I have never tried this coffee, but it looks delicious! I love to drink coffee and I bet this is easy to take with you, and drink it on the way to work!

  31. Amazing post! Love the bacon pic. Love that you didn’t realize there was alcohol. Whoops!

  32. It sounds so yummy, I want to try them all!!!!
