Alright - I have made some GREAT Kahlua! My March batch had a weak coffee taste. The April batch came out so good. The May batch should be similar to the April batch. It will be ready in a few weeks.

Thanks for those who replied to my earlier request for a recipe. I kinda made my own recipe from those I collected.

Recipe:
1) 1/2 cup Espresso (1/4+ cup fresh roasted beans + 3/4 cup water through my cheap Krupps espresso machine)
2) 1 cup sugar
3) 16 oz Vodka (Smirnoff)
4) 1/2 vanilla bean, slit lengthwise
Mix sugar in warm espresso, then mix together with vodka. Fill empty bottle, add vanilla bean. Seal, wait two months (the hardest part).
Yields 28 oz - just fills an empty Kahlua bottle.

Now that I know the recipe is good, I am going to made bigger batches.

Thanks again!
