This recipe really is SO EASY. I hope you are ready to share this video to show how simple it is!
My mom made this 1-hour homemade coffee liqueur recipe every fall I was growing up, set the bottles on the shelf, and then had a bottle to take as a hostess gift to every holiday party, every progressive dinner, or to add to a gift basket.
In addition to the following ingredients, you will need jars for storing or gifting. You can pour some of the coffee liqueur back into the fifth bottle, use canning jars, or any variety of the Grolsch brand (or similar) bottle. I scored a dozen bottles at a homebrew shop while in college and they were inexpensive and well made. I love the rubber flange which ensures a great seal and mine have lasted 10 years without needing replacement. If I had to buy more bottles, I might get the clear glass as it is fun to see the color of the concoction you are serving. You’ll want to get these jars for sure!
