Aloha kakahiaka! (Good morning in Hawai’ian) Here in Ruidoso, New Mexico we just say “howdy.” Happy Tuesday morning and greetings to all you coffee fiends. That’s fiends not friends. I know how you really feel about coffee! The purpose of this blog is to unite coffee lovers, especially lovers of Kona coffee, and perhaps learn a little about coffee and all the benefits of coffee at the same time.
Found a recipe for Coffee Liqueur from a blog by the folks at Creative Culinary. It only takes about an hour and a quarter to put it all together and it will make a great homemade treat for New Year’s Eve. You’re going to need 4 cups water, 2 cups brown sugar, 2 cups white sugar, 1/4 cup of Hula Girl freeze-dried Kona coffee (yes, we have that), 3 cups vodka, 2 vanilla beans, split, and 2 shots of chocolate liqueur. When you have all that ready, combine the water, both sugars and Hula Girl freeze-dried Kona coffee in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil; turn the heat to low and simmer for a minimum of 1 hour to reduce the mixture and make a more syrupy consistency. Watch constantly and stir occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool. Next, you add vodka, vanilla beans and chocolate liqueur and then pour everything into a storage container. Let it age for 3-4 weeks in a cool, dark location; stirring once or twice a week. When ready to bottle, remove vanilla beans, bottle mixture and store.
