I love coffee and I do like a cocktail now and then. Kahlua is really tasty, but it can be quite expensive to buy. Then I discovered that you can easily make a coffee liqueur at home for a fraction of the cost. All you have to do is create a coffee syrup, let it cool completely, add vodka, and bottle it up. So, guess what most of the family are getting for Christmas this year?!
Make it several weeks in advance in order for the vodka to mellow in the syrup. Shake or mix periodically to keep the sugar from precipitating out of suspension.
Enjoy as a Black/White Russian, Espresso Martini, or just pour it over ice cream!
