  • Make sure to use a good quality Tequila for the best results.
  • Try using a flavored Kahlúa for a unique twist on the classic drink.

  • Substitute Tequila with Vodka - Vodka is a more neutral spirit and will allow the flavor of the Kahlúa to come through more prominently.
  • Substitute Kahlúa with Coffee Liqueur - Coffee Liqueur will provide a stronger coffee flavor than Kahlúa, resulting in a more robust cocktail.

White Mexican In an old-fashioned glass, combine 1 ounce Tequila and 1 ounce White Crème de Cacao. Stir well. Add ice and stir.

A: An old-fashioned glass is recommended for this recipe. It is a short glass with a wide top and narrow bottom.

Fun facts:

The name of the drink, “Black Mexican”, is said to have been inspired by the Mexican revolutionary Francisco “Pancho” Villa, who was known for wearing a signature black sombrero.

The Tequila used in this cocktail was popularized by actor and singer Mario Lopez, who starred in the 80s film “The Karate Kid” and sang the hit song “Let’s Get Loud”.
