Homemade liquor: what's cooking
One of the most famous coffee liqueur is Kahlua, a part of the famous cocktail B-52. If you want you can make home-made liqueur flavored coffee, virtually conceding its "famous" prototype. For this we take :
- 700 ml of water
- 500 ml of purified alcohol or vodka

Grind coffee beans in a coffee grinder (it is better not to take the ground powder, since it has a weaker flavor than freshly ground grain). Brew coffee in a glass of water and pour into the jar along with the thick. Tightly close the jar and insist in a dark place for a day.
After a day, carefully filter the coffee. From 500 ml of water and 250 g of granulated sugar, cook the syrup (bring the water to a boil, pour sugar and cook on minimal heat, stirring constantly). Mix warm syrup, coffee and alcohol or vodka, pour on bottles and insist another day.
After 24 hours, we filter our home-made liquor again and put it in a dark place to insist (the longer the better).
Sweet tooth will definitely enjoy the homemade liquor with chocolate. Light, sweet, flavorful — yum! To prepare the chocolate liquor, we take :

Chocolate three on a fine grater, pour refined alcohol or vodka, add vanillin and mix thoroughly. We insist on a dark place in a closed pot for a week. Every day you need to shake the jar well.
After a week, prepare a syrup from water, sugar and milk. Mix ingredients, heated on low heat, stirring, until until the sugar has dissolved, and bring to a boil. Fully cooled syrup and mix with a chocolate liqueur.

Cook the egg-milk mixture on minimum heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. It is very important not to allow the mixture to boil, otherwise the yolk will curtail.
