Home Made Kahula

I got a fun gift from a friend and I thought I'd share it with you! Kahula is a tastey treat to occassionally add to a Dunkin Donut's Vanilla Bean or Coffee Coolattas or to made frozen mudslides with or to use in Kahula cake! I had mentioned this to my friend and she found this really cool kit to make Kahula!! So... I did!!

The ingredients may surprise you,  brown sugar, white sugar, instant coffee, water, a vanilla bean and vodka!

First I mixed the sugars and coffee with water and brought it to a boil.....  that was easy!

After pouring the mixture back into the canning jar, I poured a measured amount of vodka in with it!

I scored the vanilla bean and added that to the jar too. So far so good, now it sits on a shelf for a month waiting. The directions say to shake it up once a week for a month and then use over ice cream, cooking, drinks etc. It also suggested adding a tablespoon of  chocolate syrup to it.... I think I might just add that before it sits for too long! :) I'll let you know how it comes out! IT SHOULD BE DELICIOUS!

Now we're talking! You can keep your shudder-worthy Onion Jam, but please pass the homemade Kahlua! LOL
