Homemade Kahlua !!

Homemade Kahlua !! created by Sara 76

If you are looking for a tasty homemade gift, a lower-cost version of the brand-name liqueur or just a fun cooking project, try making your own Kahlua at home. This easy to follow recipe produces a rich, velvety coffee-flavored elixir that is the main ingredient of drinks such as White Russians, Mudslides and Chunky Monkeys. Kahlua is also a delicious "on the rocks" drink, whether straight over ice or topped off with a little half-and-half cream. (From ehow.com)

    Making this for a second time. I used exactly 1/2 the sugars (for my friends who don't like too much sweet). Instead of white sugar I substituted cane sugar because its so much more yummy! I used the Costco Kirkland brand giant bottle (1.75litre) of French vodka and saved just a few ounces to make some drinks from ;) It got rave reviews last time to those who received some as a gift!

    Why is this recipe in liters? Google won't even tackle 3/4 of a liter. Water, sugars, and coffee are measured in cups. Bt the vodka in liters. Can I get this recipe in measurements I can understand? At 72 I am not about to embark on a Math career. All I want is a Kahlua recipe, please and thank you.

    Just finished my first batch, but agree that it should be half rum half Vodka, will see after it sets for a few weeks. It would probably be just fine for a mix. still love the fact that it's cheap and easy(2 liters for 13 bucks :) ) . Kahlua has always been a favorite of mine.

    No Vanilla Bean, Cheap Vodka, Cheap Instant Coffee, only used what was at hand. But like Wine, many times cheaper is better, $10 bottles have beaten out $300 bottles. Still needs the rum. Cheap rum.
