Coffee Liqueur - Holiday Gift

This is a very easy gift.
I put it in an ikea bottle
but you can use old wine bottles with a cork
and seal with wax
or if you want to give smaller bottles
 put it in glass soda bottles like Crush or Jones
 it can be put in a wine bottle bag
or decorate with a pretty bow

Home Made Coffee Liqueur

1 ½ C strong expresso or very strong coffee -  I have used instant coffee crystals
1 qt. Vodka
1 C brown sugar – or more to tatse
1 Tbsp. Vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean

Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Place in glass jars
and allow to age 3 weeks to 3 months
