Yield: 1 Servings
2 c Water
2 c White sugar
1/2 c Dry instant coffee
1/2 Vanilla bean (I use vanilla
-extract; about 1 to 2 tsp)
1 1/2 c Vodka
Caramel coloring (optional)
Boil water and sugar until dissolved. Turn off heat. Slowly add dry
instant coffee and continue stirring. Add a chopped vanilla bean to
the vodka, then combine the cooled sugar syrup and coffee solution
with the vodka. Cover tightly and shake vigorously each day for 3
weeks. Strain and filter. Yield: about 4 cups
I do substitute vanilla extract for the vanilla bean because I
always have the extract on hand. I also don't usually wait three
weeks to drink it. If you use the extract you only have to wait a
short while to try it. (Like about 5 minutes :-).
Its also best to let the sugar mixture cool completely so the vodka
won't evaporate when its added. I've never added the caramel
coloring. You really don't need it.
If you like a smoother feel to the liqueur you can add about 1
teaspoon of glycerine to the finished product.
