Who can afford the outrageous price the original brings for this? This is not bad and X drank it with coffee for years…still do.

1 1/2 C brown sugar (can use piloncillo…1 C=8 oz)

1 C white sugar

2 C water

1/2 C instant coffee powder

3 C vodka or rum

1 vanilla bean, split (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)

Combine sugars and water and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Lower heat and add coffee slowly, stirring with wire whisk. Stir until coffee is dissolved and allow to cool. Split your vanilla bean with a sharp knife, and scrape out the pulp from the bean. Add to cooled  mixture and mix in vodka. It must all stay together in gallon jug until vanilla permeates the mixture. 2 weeks will do unless you use extract. IMO, it’s worth the wait to use the vanilla bean.
