Aunt Jo's Homemade Kahlua (by CM Herold, eHow Member)
10 tsp. instant coffee
3 c. sugar (this time I used organic powdered sugar, it's the only sugar I had in the house)
3 c. water
3 tsp. vanilla
1 quart vodka
1. In a large saucepan combine the instant coffee, sugar, and water, whisk together. Simmer, make sure the mixture does not boil. Simmer on low for two hours. Let cool.
2. In a mixing bowl combine (whisk) the vodka and vanilla. When the coffee sugar water mixture is cool add it to the vodka and vanilla. Stir or whisk to combine.
3. Pour into bottles, let age for 10 weeks before gifting.
- We like Kahlua in our coffee during the holidays, it's also good over ice with a little milk with dessert. Another great way to enjoy Kahlua is with Homemade Vegan Eggnog (recipe is on the blog).
