Homemade kahlua and frangelico

The only way to make good home-made Kahlua is to use a vanilla pod - using 'essence' doesn't quite deliver the authentic flavour.

Has anyone done this?

Hi years ago I made kahlua and also home made baileys . Her is a recipe for kahlua .

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup granulated instant coffee
1 cup vodka
1 cup boiling water
3 tsp vanilla essence

Dissolve sugar and coffee in boiling water,add rest of ingredients. Bottle and leave at least a month. Improves with age(don't we all!)

this is the one that im keen on using but there seems to be a crazy amount of rum in it,

1 750 ml bottle vodka or white rum
1 1/4 cups dark rum, like Pampero
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 pound whole coffee beans
1 vanilla bean
1 cinnamon stick
1 tablespoon cocoa nibs, optional
1 slice of orange peel, optional

go to your home brew shop and get the khalua flavouring and a pkt of sweetner /thickener, will cost $15.00 and add to vodka as per instuctions

I have been making this Kahlua for years. You can do 1/2 recipe too.
6 cups Brown Sugar
4 cups Water
2oz Nescafe Mild Coffee( or any mild coffee)
3tsp Vanilla Essence
1 26oz Vodka
1/2 cup of Brandy or Crème de Cacao(Optional. I don't add to mine)
Bring all except Vodka and Brandy to boil in large pot, watching carefully as boils over very quickly.
Boil 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and cool.
Add the Vodka and Brandy if using.
This can be used straight away but it is so much better if you can hold off for a few weeks.
