Homemade Kahlua

Today is National Kahlua Day so I thought it would be a good time to mix up a batch. I did this fairly quickly so the pictures aren't the greatest but it is really easy to make.

2 cups water
2 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup instant coffee
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon rum extract
2 cups vodka

Boil water and sugar to 225F or for 3 minutes at a rolling boil.

Remove from heat and stir in instant coffee. Continue stirring until coffee is dissolved. This could take several minutes.

Add vanilla and rum extract.

Let mixture cool for about a half hour. It should be lukewarm but not hot.

Add vodka and stir.

Pour into bottles. (If all the coffee didn't dissolve pour through a strainer if desired.) This recipe makes 5 cups. I had enough to refill my Kahlua bottle and a pint jar.

That's it. You now have Kahlua.
