Kids, if I can do this, anybody can!

I got this recipe from PACIFIC ISLANDS COOKBOOK (1977) by Monica Bayley.

Ingredients:

2 Cups Sugar
1/2 Cup Instant Coffee
2 Tablespoons Cocoa
1 Cup Boiling Water
1 Cup Blended Whiskey
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Directions:

Mix sugar, coffee, & cocoa together.
Add boiling water.
Mix well.
Cool.
Skim foam.
Add whiskey & vanilla extract.
Mix.

Rather than instant coffee, I used Kona coffee grounds.

Rather than blended whiskey, I used a single malt.

This stuff is YUMMY!!!

The book has some other interesting recipes. If I try anymore, I'll definitely post the results.

Enjoy.

I always thought it was made with vodka. Is this more often the way it's done?

The first time I got drunk (at the ripe old age of 20), it was on homemade Kahlua made out of Everclear. Yikes.

i dunno. but using scotch made it really rich.

i guess if you used something like vanilla stoli, you could make something really yummy.

i thought about trying it again but w/ rum.

everclear - wow!

In an ongoing attempt to use up copious amounts of garden rhubarb, this fall i made rhubarb liqueur from a recipe using vodka and white wine and flavored with lemon zest and artichoke leaves. I was not impressed with the results -- wish I'd just drunk the vodka and wine while eating the artichoke.

We had a huge bottle of cheap Canadian Whiskey left over from our Wedding, so this past Christmas we made a huge batch Irish Cream and bottled it, and gave it out as gifts. Everyone swears it tastes exactly the same as Bailey's.

Give a report, Tiki Chris, about the results of the Rum and Kona Coffee creation if you get around to it before I do. My wife has been making Kahlua with vodka lately (so we have a couple of bottles to get rid of before I make more) but I've been thinking a Kona Coffee and Rum based liqueur might be pretty darn good (Konahlua perhaps?).
