Homemade Kahlua

Top Review by Make It Easy

Easy and awesome!! I made it exactly as above - for Xmas gifts. I was very happy with the results! I tried some right away YUMMM but am also waiting on some for the 3 months. I used the mesh coffee filter that came with my coffee pot to catch the coffee grounds. I ladeled the kahlua from the cooking pot to the coffee filter which I held over a large measuring cup. Then I poured from the measuring cup into a funnel in my special bottles. Thanks for sharing your recipe - it is VERY GOOD and will be an annual gift now! It was so EASY!
