Like every year, I made some edible gifts to give my friends for Christmas. Last year, I had successfully made some Bailey’s Irish Cream, so this time I wanted to experiment with other flavoured liqueurs. I love Kahlua, so I thought I would try that. I found lots of recipes and in the end I made the one I will share with you today. It tastes really good, but it’s not as thick and “syrupy” like the original Kahlua, so I thought of changing the name to Coffee and Vanilla Liqueur. That said, it is really easy to make and if you like coffee, you will love this! I also made some of my Orange Marzipan Balls and Pineapple and Passion fruit Jam to put in this year’s Christmas basket. Check out these and more Christmas gift ideas here. Enjoy!
- Pour the water into a big pot. Add the sugar to it and put the pot on the fire. Stir well until the sugar dissolves, then put the fire off and let the syrup come back to room temperature before proceeding.
- Add the Vodka, vanilla extract and coffee to the cold mixture. Stir well and transfer the mixture into glass container.
- Keep refrigerated for 3 to 4 weeks, then strain the Coffee and Vanilla Liqueur and bottle it.
- You can serve it cold or at room temperature.
