Cocktail Series-Homemade Kahlua

Starting off the summer cocktail series with a homemade liqueur- The Kahlua. In mood to do everything from scratch- Learn, save money, customize. But most importantly, getting liqueurs in Muscat is slightly difficult. If you want to mix your own drinks in small batches, best learn from scratch.

Kahlua is quite a versatile mixer- Baby Eskimo, Black Russian, Chocolate Covered Cherries, Creamy Punani,Dirty Apple Juice or just to add a twist to your hot chocolate or coffee on a cold evening. Turns out its really easy to make.


  • Coffee- 1/ 2 cup (I grind mine from Robusta beans directly, else you could take 2 tbsp of Nescafe Instant)
  • Sugar (preferably Demerra)- 1 cup
  • Vodka- 1/2 cup
  • Vanilla essence- 1 tsp



Blend sugar, vodka, coffee to slush. Cool. In a clean container pour the vanilla essence, and slowly pour in the mix. Shake and store in a cool dry place.
