“. Dazzle your friends and family with this inexpensive gift that keeps on giving. Make this brew about a month ahead of time, as it needs to sit and gather flavor and potency. It’s a heck of a lot cheaper than that liquor store stuff at twenty-bucks a bottle. I also put my Kahlua up in sanitized pint tequila bottles with a cute Christmas label and a ribbon. Make sure to include a small “Ingredients” label on the bottle to prevent lawsuits from unappreciative in-laws. My label reads; “Hand-crafted using the finest cheap domestic vodka, select instant coffee and genuine imitation vanilla flavoring””

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve the sugar in 2 Cups of the boiling water with the cinnamon stick and add corn syrup. Dissolve instant coffee in the other 1 Cup of boiling water. Discard cinnamon stick. Let cool and pour both mixtures into a gallon jug. Add vodka and vanilla and shake well. Ready in about 3-4 weeks.
  2. Use in White Russians, Black Russians, in your coffee or add to a brownie or cake mix. Also could in a pinch for an oil change in your Ford F150 pickup.
