    Homemade Kahlua

    4 cups water*
    1/2 cup instant coffee* - see note below

    4 cups brown sugar

    1/2 liter vodka **update** I recently made a batch with a full liter of vodka on accident and actually liked it a bit a bit more, so I would say use a minimum of a 1/2 liter

    2 vanilla beans or 2 Tablespoon vanilla

    Combine water, instant coffee, and brown sugar in large pot and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. This is important because the boiling point for alcohol is 79. If you put the vodka in before it has cooled to at least this temperature, you risk loosing some of the alcohol to evaporation. Combine the vodka with the cooled coffee mixture. Cut the vanilla beans in half and place into a clean 1 liter glass bottle. Fill bottle with the coffee liquer and give it a shake. The black specks floating around are the seeds from the vanilla bean also called “vanilla caviar”. Yum! Store in a cool, dark place for at least 2 weeks. The longer it sits, the tastier it gets but that is usually as long as I can wait.

    * You can substitute 4 cups of your favorite strongly brewed coffee for the water and instant coffee. I actually had some decent instant that a friend brought me back from Jamaica in my last batch that worked out great but use whatever you like.

    I make my own schnapps and kahlua. LOVE IT! The schnapps is not as syrupy as store bought, so goes down smooth but will kick your butt. This you can make and drink the same day. I have taken it to parties still warm. I do use Everclear for my recipes. I have a basic kahlua recipe I have been making and drinking for 20+ years. When I discovered Watkins Caramel flavoring..................now all I make is Caramel Kahlua. And Walmart sells the Watkins Caramel Flavoring. So for about $20 in supplies for a "batch" you get 5-fifths of Caramel Kahlua. My SIL calls it liquid snickers.

    Walmart alos sells the candy flavoring to make most schnapps.

    I love Bailey's in a cup of coffee. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
