I made these kaluha coladas on Friday evening. They taste like ice cream and have about 5,000 calories. :shock:

2/3 cup kaluha
2/3 cup cream of coconut
2 tbsp. rum (I had to use vodka)
3 cups ice

Blend til smooth. That's for two drinks.

Hmm...maybe it is actually 6,000 calories! :lol:

LOL! Doesn't sound right to me. :? Maybe you're supposed to drink the two tablespoons while you're mixing the drink. Sort of like a cocktail appetizer. :lol:

But there is 1/3 cup kaluha per drink!! That's a lot of kaluha--isn't it high in ABV? I guess I should check. You could always add more rum!

love that glass. cute!
do you just happen to have a black countertop or are you using some sort of back drop?

Marybeth, that's my dining room table. John picked it. Our house is kind of contemporary, furnishing wise, because that's what he likes, and it works well with my allergies (no carpets etc).

Plus, as you can see from the scratches, we let the kids do what they want while in our house, so we are not ready for "heirloom" furniture.

Yeah, the black works well with photos. I noticed Gourmet magazine is starting to use black for their backgrounds a lot. I think it makes the colors pop a little more. Not that I know what I am talking about :roll:
