Betty Cooks - Homemade Kahlua

Have you ever made/had home made Kahlua? There is nothing better than the homemade stuff!

Here is my Mom's recipe for home made Kahlua. This is a good liquor to have around in the cold weather. Add a little to your coffee or perhaps use in a favorite recipe instead of water, etc!

I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does!


3 Cups water
4 Cups sugar
1 Vanilla bean
2 Ounces instant coffee
1 quart 80 proof vodka


1. Boil water and sugar for 20 minutes
2. Split vanilla bean lengthwise and add to sugar water. Let cool and add coffee (that has been dissolved in water)
3. Let cool thoroughly. Add Vodka
4. Seal in a half gallon jar for at least 2 weeks. Remove vanilla bean and enjoy!
