Seasonal Kahluah

Every Christmas for the past ten years, I have made homemade Kahluah to give to friends and family for holiday libations. The secret ingredient in my version is added brandy, to cut the sweetness and bring out the coffee flavor. I make 3 quarts at a time and then divide into mini jugs and glass bottles for gifts.
For San Franciscans who pride themselves on eating organically, this recipe is as close to organic, as one can get ( sorry, not the vodka) and served with Rice Milk over ice makes an excellent alternative White Russian!

Instructions

  1. 1Boil sugar in water for 10 minutes. Add the instant espresso coffee, and remove from heat.
  2. 2Add the vodka, brandy and vanilla bean, and swirl around to get a good mix.
  3. 3Pour contents into large mason jar and keep in a dark place for 4-6 weeks, shaking regularly. The longer it waits, the better it tastes.
