    DIRECTIONS

  • Find a glass bottle or jar big enough to hold the liquor (at least 3 cups).  Pour in 2 cups of rum (or vodka), the vanilla, and ground coffee.  Shake to combine and keep on the kitchen counter for 2 to 3 days to infuse the liquor with coffee, and shake every so often to redistribute the ingrediants.   Note:  your results will be better if you use freshly ground coffee beans.
  • Strain the liquor through a fine mesh strainer, then through coffee filters until all the grounds are removed.  Throw away the used grounds.
  • Make a simple syrup by placing the water, brown sugar, and white sugar into a large sauce pan.  Simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently for 5 minutes or until all the sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat and let syrup cool in the pan to room temperature.
  • Combine syrup with infused, strained, liquor and pour into individual glass jars or bottles, and keep in the refrigerator or dark cupboard for a couple weeks.   At first there will be a strong taste of alcohol which will mellow in 2-3 weeks, resulting in a smooth, caramel, coffee liqueur.
