Homemade Kahlua Recipe:

For Christmas this year, I made all of our big kids homemade kahlua, except for Nigel.   The picture above isn't from me, but I like how that lady did her wrapping and maybe will do that next year.  I ended up using quart canning jars and wine bottles.  The wine bottles would have been even better if I had been able to find corks or stoppers for them.  Oh, well, it was my first year.  The Kahlua turned out great; I can figure out the packaging next time.  

Some people have been requesting the recipe, so here is one I used.  I found it on a neat website called ""


* 2 cups dry (unprepared) instant coffee (but not 
   freeze dried)
* 7 cups of white granulated sugar
* 1 quart of water
* 1 quart of 80 proof vodka (no particular brand)
* 1 whole vanilla bean

To Make It: 

1. Bring the water to a full boil.  Remove from heat and add the instant coffee and the sugar.

2. Stir constantly until the sugar and coffee are completely dissolved.

3. Allow the mixture to cool, then add the vodka and stir.

4. Pour into two separate 1-quart canning jars.  

5. Drop 1/2 of the vanilla bean into each container.  Seal tightly. 

6. Label the container with the date, and store the kahlua in a cool, dark place for at least 30 days, undisturbed.  The longer you let it sit, the better it will be.
