    My mother and I made a version of this that she loved to give as gifts for Christmas. I don’t remember using white sugar, just brown and we also used to use a whole vanilla bean! Yummy stuff. People used to count on it! LOL

  • With Christmas coming, this is a nice little gift to pass on. Thanks Susan!

  • I can only imagine how amazing that coffee liqueur would be. My sister loves that variety. Maybe I can convince her we should make some when I visit over the holidays.

    Another must-try recipe, Susan! I appreciate that you give details on why certain ingredients are necessary as well as alternatives. I am a bad cook, and when these things are explained, I stand a better chance of making something edible–and drinkable!

  • You’re right. It does sound pretty simple and a great thing to have around for the holidays.

  • I know what I’m doing this weekend! I have lots of friends who would love this, if I don’t keep it all to myself. Thank you for posting this in plenty of time for Christmas gifts!

    • Happy Dance… You will be amazed at how easy it is Meredith. If you don’t keep it all for yourself, your friends will be asking for more so make a double batch. 🙂

  • Hi Susan,

    You always amaze me! Never in my wildest dreams would I think I could make home made Liqueur. You are so awesome! I do have to pass this one on especially with the holidays coming around. It would make the perfect gift!


    • Aw thanks a bunch Donna. Most homemade liqueurs are really super easy. The hard part is the waiting. I hope you take a moment or two to give this one a try. 🙂
