Mmm, coffee with kahlua. mmm, kahlua and cream. Mmm, kahlua. Making kahlua is actually easy, it just takes some time. There are a ton of recipes on the internet. Most of them use instant coffee, and after you make it, it needs about a month to sit, settle, and get ready. It makes great holiday gifts.

The recipe I've used the last several years goes like this:

3 cups water
3 cups sugar
10 teaspoons instant coffee
3 cups vodka
3 teaspoons vanilla extract

Simmer water, sugar & coffee for 1 hour in a large pot. It will thicken, and the sugar and coffee will dissolve. Let cool (if it's cold outside I usually stick it outside to cool faster).
Add vanilla & vodka. Bottle in sanitized bottles, let sit for a month, shaking every so often to mix.
