Coffee liqueur - glorious liqueurs

Yield: 5 Cups

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup Firmly packed light or dark
Brown sugar
1 cup Sugar
2 cups Water
½ cup Instant coffee powder or
Crystals
3 cups Vodka
1½ tablespoon Vanilla extract
1 teaspoon Glycerine, optional
10 Whole coffee beans

In a heavy medium sized saucepan, combine the sugars and water. Bring to a boil over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally. Lower the heat. Simmer until the mixture forms a syrup, about 5 minutes.

Stir the coffee powder into the syrup with a whisk until dissolved and the mixture is lump free. Remove the pan from the heat. Let cool completely.

Stir in the remaining ingredients until smooth. Funnel the mixture into a half gallon glass bottle; drop in the whole coffee beans.

Cover tightly. Let mature for at least two weeks. Strain out the coffee beans, if desired.
