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 just to be safe I used 1 cup coffee granules to make sure that the taste of coffee will be noticed. Perfect! Will make again!!!

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 liqueur for about 35 years; I use 4 cups of triple-strength brewed coffee and 4 cups of sugar. I also use decaf coffee sometimes.
