Yeah, I tried some, see the bottle on the left? Yeah, it's good!
4 cups white sugar
4 cups water
3/4 cup instant coffee granules
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
4 cups vodka
1. In a 3 quart saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in instant coffee, and allow to cool. I always skim off the foam that forms on top when it's cool, before adding alcohol.
2. When cool, stir in vanilla extract and vodka. Pour into clean bottles. Close bottles tightly, and store in a cool dark place.
One thing I have found is you have to shake it just about every day, the sugar wants to crystallize, so shaking it helps keep everything together.
I got this recipe from here
There are other variations on this recipe.
I made mine with Everclear instead of Vodka, it's what I had on hand, it made it much stronger, I'm going to try it again with Vokda soon.
