For a Coffee Liqueur, Kahlúa is the definite go-to. Crafted in Mexico, Kahlúa is dense and sweet, with the distinct taste of coffee and rich notes of caramel and vanilla.  Kahlúa is perfect to be enjoyed on the rocks, but is also well known as the key ingredient in a number of cocktail recipes including the frozen Mudslide , B-52, and even in deserts like the Tiramisu.

 

 

 

 Sweet Vermouth  / Dry Vermouth

Vermouth is a fortified wine infused with herbs, alcohol, sugar, caramel and water according to specific recipes in Italy and France. The use of vermouth as a modifier has defined many of the classic cocktails, most notably, sweet vermouth in a Manhattan and dry vermouth in a Martini  . In addition to creating cocktails, vermouth can also be used in place of white wine in cooking. Dolin is the brand to turn to for Vermouth, specifically the Dolin Rouge and Dolin Dry.
