Homemade Kahlua has a perfect balance of sweetness that is shared with coffee and rum.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 8 Cups
- 2 1/2 cups strong and hot fresh brewed coffee
- 4 cups sugar - organic
- 2 1/4 cups rum
- 1 inch vanilla bean - cut in half lengthwise for aged quality or 1 tablespoon of a good quality vanilla extract for instant gratification
Stir sugar into hot coffee and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Add the rum and vanilla pieces, stir.
Cover and let set for 2 to 3 weeks in a cool place.
Strain, remove beans and bottle.
If you are using the vanilla extract then stir in and it is ready. It won't have quite the depth of flavor but it is good.
