So we still have the New Year to celebrate and here's an EZ homemade recipe to help:
1 quart water 3 cups sugar 16 teaspoons instant coffee 1/5 Vodka 2 teaspoons vanilla (or one fresh vanilla bean)
Simmer two hours, allow to cool, add two teaspoons real vanilla extract
Makes approx. two fifths of Kahlua
You can see the two bottles we made in the picture. Plus you can make it taste more or less like coffee. I always tell my kids recipes are just a guideline - adjust everything to your own taste and desire. That's why I love to cook at home - things taste just the way I want them - well, unless I burn it. :)
