  Dona & Mel have this to say about Kahlua:
  
  The Mexican "Kahlua" & Jamaican "Tia Maria" are probably the best
  known coffee flavored liqueurs. Other companies produce similar
  drinks called Moka, Mocha, Creme de Mocha, & so forth. Coffee is
  among the easiest flavors to simulate. We recieved many recipes from
  our friends that varied only slightly from one another. It seemed
  that everyone had made a version of "Kahlua" at one time & treasured
  his own recipe.
  
  VARIATION: Substitute rum for the vodka to yeild a simulated "Tia
  Maria". Substitute brandy for the vodka for another simulated
  "Kahlua".
    
  Chris' Notes: I like to use the vodka version with a pinch of
  cardamom. Experimenting with this recipe I have found that instead of
  throwing out a partial pot of coffee, save it in a tightly covered
  container in the fridge until you get 2 cups worth. Then use it in
  place of the water & delete the instant coffee. (Very FRUGAL
  considering the price of good coffee these days!)
