My favorite drink is an amaretto sour, but all I had was Kahlua on hand so I thought I'd give it a shot - I love it! Sounds weird, and even tastes a bit strange, but it is such a good strange! You get that nice sour kick from the lemon first, and then it totally mellows out into a warm smooth finish with the Kahlua. Brilliant! Thanks for sharing!

I was intrigued with this drink recipe, as I love lemon and also like Kahlua, but wouldn't think to put the two together. After first sip I would have rated it a 4, very confusing flavors, but after a couple more sips, it grew on me. Thanks Mary for a very interesting new drink!!! Made for beverage tag.
