Keri Cathey

Serves/Makes:2 quarts

  • 2 cups (475 ml) water
  • 4 cups (950 ml) sugar
  • 2 oz (56 grm) (1 cup) instant coffee granules
  • 2 cups (475 ml) vodka
  • 6 oz (168 grm) to 8 oz (224 grm) real vanilla extract
  • Bring water and sugar to a rolling boil in large pot.
  • Stir and boil 2 minutes.
  • Add coffee granules.
  • Remove from heat, stir until well dissolved.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Add vodka and vanilla, stirring well.
  • Bottle in dark bottles, and store tightly capped for 2 weeks before using.
  • Use as you would the commercial variety.
  • We like it this way: add 1 jigger Kahlua and 1 jigger half-n-half to a mug and fill with hot coffee. Heavenly!
A perfectly wonderful replacement for expensive store-bought coffee-flavored liqeuer.
