I started getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas today by making one of Ma’am’s best, most asked for recipes – Kahlua. It is a simple thing to make but you need to make it early and let it sit at least one month before serving. It is even better if you wait longer, as in YEARS!
I am going for 6 months. But, since I doubled the recipe I may keep half of it longer. As it “ages” the water evaporates and it consequently thickens and becomes sweeter. For now it is in these ugly bottles to age, and I will put it in some pretty bottles for gift giving and serving in November.

If coffee flavored liqueuer isn’t your thing, we also have recipes for Apricot Liqueuer, Amaretto (almond flavored) and Galliano (anise flavored).
A toast to the servicemen and women and their families that paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect the United States. From the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU!
Until next time, happy eating
