Here is Elizabeth’s story about her Kahlua:
“Since owning my Thermomix it has become a tradition to make edible gifts for the family at Christmas. We are all mad keen Kahlua drinkers so I went in search of a recipe because what sort of Christmas hamper doesn’t have alcohol in it? Most of the recipes I found were made on coffee granules and that’s ok but I have a coffee pod machine that I need to make use of or my hubby will list it on Gumtree! Given that booze and coffee are two of his favourite things winner winner chicken dinner! This recipe is the result of me cherry picking the best bits of what I found and after trialling it on the family last year it got a big thumbs up.”
- 600g espresso
- 700g raw sugar
- 360g vodka
- 4 Tbsp vanilla essence
- For the espresso I used my Aldi Expressi and pods. 6 pods yield 600-700g of coffee if you do 1 long cup and 1 short cup per pod. I used the New Guinea flavour which is strength 10. I also used a jug to collect the coffee instead of a cup and removed as much foam from the top of the coffee as I could before adding to the TM bowl.
- Place sugar and coffee in TM bowl and mix 5 mins / speed 1 / MC off until sugar is dissolved.
- Remove TM bowl from unit and allow coffee to cool.
- Add vodka and vanilla and mix 1 min / speed 2 / MC off placing simmering basket on TM lid to prevent spatter.
- Bottle and enjoy!
Add a vanilla bean to your bottle for extra flavour. Looks really good in bottles you may be gifting.
If you don't own a coffee pod machine you can use your coffee plunger or percolator to make espresso.
