Homemade Kahlua

It’s crazy to think it’s already December.  Since everyone is scrambling around making treats, and holiday shopping, this is the perfect post to share with you.  A few weeks ago I made a Kahlua & Fudge Hot Chocolate, and ran out of Kahlua.  So I decided it’s time to make some homemade coffee-boozy love.  Making homemade Kahlua is so easy, and just fun to say you made it.  So grab a bottle, a few glasses, and let’s enjoy some Homemade Kahlua together.

Homemade Kahlua

This is my Mom’s recipe that she got from a friend years ago.  I can totally remember the paper the recipe was on, and how it was held together with a safety pin.  Mom always made this recipe during the holidays, because she and dad love Kahlua & cream.  She sometimes shared it… okay, she always shared the delicious liquor.

Right now you will find many bloggers sharing homemade liquor recipes.  They all look fabulous, too.  Another one I want to make is homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream.  I enjoy Kahua more though, because it can be sealed, and kept for a very long time.  With Baileys, once you open the bottle it has to be used up in seven days.  With my crazy schedule I would forget about the Bailey’s Irish Cream… and that would be bad.

I plan to make a few fun recipes with the Kahlua this month, so stay tuned!  For now, here are a few boozy treats to enjoy: Irish Coffee Blondies, Baked Apples in Red Wine, Boozy Egg Nog Caramel Corn.
