Kahlua may be the best-known coffee liqueur on the liquor shelf, but it is
not the only one. In fact, the Kahlua brand itself makes some very
interesting variations on the original, like Kahlua Especial, which is a
richer coffee flavor (dark espresso) that is 35% ABV (70 proof).
Kahlua Midnight, which is similar to the original Kahlua, is a 'Black Coffee
Liqueur' that is also 70-proof.
Kahlua also produces a few flavors like French vanilla, hazelnut, mocha and
salted caramel. These can come and go from the market as the brand continues
to experiment with new variations.

How Strong Is the Sombrero?
Kahlua varies in proof depending on the country it is sold in. In the United
States, it is 20 percent ABV (40 proof).

If we were to pour 3-ounces of milk, that would make the average Sombrero a
casual 6 percent ABV (12 proof). This drink ranks among the best low-proof
cocktails you will find.
