Homemade Kahlua Recipe
This Kahlua recipe is a ready-to-use recipe. There are others that you can make and let sit for a fair amount of time, but this is the one my sister used to make. This was one of her favourite drinks. Mix it with milk, drink it straight or make shooters with it. There are many options you can use for Kahlua. One of my favourites is adding it to my brownie mix ( I will attach the link for you to try)
2 cups water
3/4 cup instant coffee crystals
2 1/4 cups good quality rum (we used to use a product called Alcool instead but they don’t make it anymore)
4 cups granulated sugar
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
In a large pot over medium heat, combine the water, sugar and coffee crystals. Keep stirring until everything dissolves and is of smooth consistency. NOTE: Be very careful not to let it boil over, this is a very sticky recipe and if it boils over it will foam up and ALL over your stove (trust me I learned that the hard way)
Let is cool in the pot. When it has cooled down, you can pour it back into the empty rum bottle, or whatever you wish to use.
If made correctly, this recipe should make enough for a 40 oz bottle and a 10 oz bottle. If you wish to give it a little more flavour, you can add a few cocoa nibs to give it a little hint of chocolate.
