Homemade Coffee Liqueur

Christmas is right on our doorstep and I have the most indulging recipe to lift up your Christmas spirits. 🙂 Homemade Kahlua aka Coffee Liqueur. Earlier, whenever I came across coffee liqueur as an ingredient in a recipe, I would stop looking further and move on to another one because coffee liqueur is not readily available here. One fine day I decided that I shouldn’t be deterred by this and tried to find a solution. Expecting a complicated recipe, I started my search and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was pretty easy to make. Moving on to the recipe….. 🙂
