Cheap Liqueur

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by CountryLady

I got this from a major newspaper in Toronto, Canada years ago and being a "thrifty person", I've made it many times. Replace the coffee with liqueur syrups, such as apricot, cherry & creme de menthe for other flavours. Try to fool your friends!

This is IT! I've made this for years but lost the recipe. This turns out really good but is even better after it ages. I make 2 batches so on can age longer while I keep sampling the other batch. Thanks so much.
