This is a friend's recipe for Kahlua - it will make several bottles. The alcohol content works out to about 16% (32 proof). A note - this does need to steep for about a month, so if you're planning on making it, start early.

Directions

  1. Dissolve the coffe crystals in one cup of the water.
  2. Bring the remaining water to a boil and dissolve the sugar in it.
  3. Add the coffee to the sugar solution and heat almost to a boil.
  4. Add the alcohol and decant into dark containers (this makes 7-8 cups; a fifth (750 mL) is just over 3 cups, so about 2 1/2 750 mL bottles- or just double it, make 5 bottles, and give some gift bottles).
  5. Break the bean into several pieces and divide between the bottles.
  6. Seal the bottles tightly and let them stand for 30 days before serving.
