Kahlua Recipe

  Mexican Beverage

2 cups water
4 cups sugar
2 tablespoons instant coffee
3 tablespoons water
2 cups brandy
1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise

Bring 2 cups water and sugar to a boil. Simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Dissolve coffee in 3 tablespoons boiling water in a cup, then stir into the sugar mixture. Add brandy. Pour into two 1-quart Mason jars (about equal level in the two jars). Attach a string to the vanilla bean halves and submerge in the two jars. Drape the ends of string over the lips and screw on lids.

Place in a cool, dark place. Remove beans after 6 weeks and enjoy.
This tastes just like the brand-name Kahula. I use it to make Mexican Coffee. Would you like the instructions?
