Dana, (*hic*) this is terrific, just as the recipe is written. It's the best homemade Kahlua that I've had. Next time I might try the (*hic*) 100-proof vodka instead of the 80-proof, just to see if it makes a big difference in taste. Now I have to go to the store to buy more milk for White Russians! Thanks for posting.

Dana Loved this Kahula,I had a dinner party Saturday Nite and everyone loved it. I mixed vanilla ice cream as a Kahula milk Shake. Would make it again :) Kym
