Coffee Liqueur

Coffee Liqueur

4 c. sugar                                 
2 c. water
1/3 c. instant coffee                      
10 coffee beans (whole)
fifth of vodka                             
1 vanilla bean (2-3 inches)

Combine water, sugar, and coffee in a saucepan and bring to a full boil.  Skim off the froth and allow to cool thoroughly.  Pour into the container.  Add vodka, coffee beans, and vanilla bean.  Store in a dark place for three weeks.  Strain and filter.  Ready to serve.  Yield: 1½ quarts.

NOTE:  you can get more coffee flavor by upping the amount of instant coffee used.  You might even want to play around and find your favorite brand of instant coffee.
