As I was enjoying a “Brown Cow” (basically Kahlua and milk) one evening, I remembered that Kahlua is coffee liqueur, and I am very sensitive to caffeine before bed. After perusing the Kahlua website, I couldn’t find anything about caffeine content, and an extensive Google search turned up nothing. So I emailed them, and got this response:
Kahlua actually has very low levels of caffeine, (approximately 4.85 mg in each 1.5 oz drink).
One cup of coffee contains about 100mg of caffeine, so if we’re looking at 100ml of Kahlua there should be about 10 mg of caffeine. (1/10 of a cup of coffee).
So it looks like I can relax – a little Kahlua won’t keep me up after all.
