Kahlua Turkey

Try this Kahlua Turkey recipe!


Kahlua Turkey is really all about the gravy that you get from it. You take equal parts of apricot jam and kahlua, and mix them together in the food processor, then baste your turkey with it.  I usually do 1/2 cup of apricot jam and 1/2 cup of kahlua. Roast your turkey as usual. I will say, you do not get a crispy skin on your turkey with this recipe, and i know that's what some people are after. You want the drippings from the pan. Drain them into a separtor to get the fat off(use that to make the gravy, and add more if necessary). I use equal parts of fat and flour to make my gravy, along with chicken stock I've either made ahead of time, or just low sodium canned. Whichever works best for you. I usually make 6-8 cups of gravy.

Kahlua Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
