Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

2 Cup(s) Water
2 Cup(s) Sugar
1/2 Cup(s) Instant coffee, fresh jar
1/2 Vanilla bean, chopped
1 1/2 Cup(s) Vodka
1 Pinch(s) Cinnamon, Ground
1 Pinch(s) Cloves, ground
1 Pinch(s) Cardamom, ground
1 Pinch(s) Orange peel, grated
1 Pinch(s) Mint, dried flakes
Boil water & sugar together until dissolved & clear. Turn off
heat.Slowly add instant coffee & continue stirring. When well mixed let
coolto room temperature. While the coffee mixture cools, add vanilla
bean tothe vodka. When the coffee mixture is cooled add to the vodka
mixture.Cover tightly & shake vigorously each day for 3 weeks. Strain &
filter.Yield: About 4 cupsDona & Mel have this to say about Kahlua:The
Mexican "Kahlua" & Jamaican "Tia Maria" are probably the best
knowncoffee flavored liqueurs. Other companies produce similar drinks
calledMoka, Mocha, Creme de Mocha, & so forth. Coffee is among the
easiestflavors to simulate. We recieved many recipes from our friends
thatvaried only slightly from one another. It seemed that everyone had
madea version of "Kahlua" at one time & treasured his own
recipe.VARIATION: Substitute rum for the vodka to yeild a simulated
"TiaMaria". Substitute brandy for the vodka for another simulated
"Kahlua".Formatted by Christopher E. EavesChris'
Notes: I like to use the vodka version with a pinch of
cardamom.Experimenting with this recipe I have found that instead of
throwing outa partial pot of coffee, save it in a tightly covered
container in thefridge until you get 2 cups worth. Then use it in place
of the water &delete the instant coffee. (Very FRUGAL considering the
price of goodcoffee these days!)Recipe by: Homemade Liqueurs by Dona &
