Valerie’s Homemade Kahlua – Recipe


    • 3 cups sugar
    • 3 cups water
    • 12 teaspoons instant coffee ( Really good)
    • 2 tablespoons fresh coffee, coarsely ground
    • 3 cups vodka ( Good)

  1. Mix sugar, water, instant coffee and fresh coffee together in a saucepan.
  2. Simmer for 1-1/2 to 2 hours with occasional stirring.
  3. Cool.
  4. Add the vodka, brandy, and vanilla extract.
  5. Filter and pour into dark bottles.
  6. I use a metal mesh to filter out the coffee grounds.
  7. Keep the bottles in a cool, dark place for 3 months.
  8. Shake bottles every day.
