Original kahlua is made from Bacardi rum. It's not necessary to use Bacardi, you can add some middle shelf rum, but in my opinion is better than vodka.

A friend of mine used to make this with moonshine instead of vodka. I'd like to say it was better but can't remember anything after the first drink. Whew!! Good stuff. Older and wiser now we make smoothies with ice cream. Or a quick shot in the morning coffee.

very interesting. I might try that. I am showing people how to make a copy cat version of the apple pie moonshine as well. :D

I have always used a vanilla bean. And I agree - have you priced commercial Kahlua lately - ARGGG. Love the stuff and homemade is always better.

great video! Have you tried this with flavored vodka? A cherry or raspberry vodka might work well, maybe?
