"This easy and simple recipe makes three bottles of a favorite coffee-flavored liqueur! It tastes wonderful, too. The longer it's stored, the smoother the taste."

I make this liquor with vodka not rum, I also cut the water down to 3 cups. After a couple of weeks it's taste rivals the name brand coffee liquor.

Great! Hard to believe it's homemade! The change I made was I used brown sugar as the molasses gives it a thicker texture and a nice taste. I also used vodka because I had no rum on hand and jus...

Don't know if you ever got an answer to your question...this will keep for years (but, it's so good it won't last that long) and it doesn't have to be kept refrigerated. I've been making coffee...

I used tequila instead of rum. The first batch was a little too sweet for my tastes but everyone else loved it. The second batch I only used 2 1/2 cups of sugar and it turned out perfect.

I have a question: I would like to use brewed coffee instead of instant coffee and I'm wondering which type of coffee gets better results.

I would like to know how long it will keep & if it needs to be kept cold ?
