Coffee Liqueur Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 4)

On a whim I decided to whip this up, very nervous at how it would turn out. I was very pleasantly surprised. I cut the recipe in half and just used the cheapest vodka I could find. This still made enough to fill an empty wine bottle and then some! It is very tasty but I am going to let it sit for a month and see how good it is then. I really like that this doesn't call for a vanilla bean b/c I was going to use one until I found out how much they cost. OUCH! Just make sure and use real vanilla extract, not imitation.

A friend gave me homemade coffee liqueur several years ago and I just loved it. She made it with vanilla beans. I was thrilled to find this recipe that uses vanilla extract. Vanilla beans are extremely expensive when you are making as large of quantity as I did. I made it for my husband to share with his co-workers and our various friends. It is delicious and I plan to make again.

I've been using a similar recipe for years as Christmas gifts, and it is always appreciated. We love to serve it over ice cream, or mixed in milk. I even put about 1/2 cup in chili con carne. My recipe only uses 2 cups boiling water and a pint of brandy or vodka. Instead of the vanilla extract I use a vanilla bean cut in half and added to two clean bottles. It then sits for 60 days. This recipe is quicker to the finished product, but I still prefer the "fermenting" process. The recipe was given to me by an Army nurse at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas in 1966.

I've been using this recipe for years. At times I've run out of ingredients and have substituted with poor results. I always come back to this recipe for excellent results, simplicity and a good kahlua substitute!
