Commonly Asked Questions

What can I use in place of the Kahlua?

You may try using the same amount of coffee liqueur or creme de cacao in place of the Kahlua. If you’re feeling adventurous, you may even try to make our own Kahlua recipe.

Can I make a batch of this Tootsie Roll drink recipe ahead of time?

While it’s always better to serve our Tootsie Roll drink fresh, you can try to make these in batches by storing them in the fridge overnight, no more than that. You may try to serve these in a punch bowl as well by adjusting the serving size in our recipe. Simply mix the two ingredients (make sure they’re both chilled beforehand) together in a bowl with ice to enjoy with friends!

Can I customize this Tootsie roll drink?

Feel free to experiment on the taste of this to your liking! You can adjust the sweetness level by adding less Kahlua and mixing it with any plain base like vodka.
