  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 4 cups cheap vodka
  • 2 vanilla beans


  • Combine the water, sugar, and instant coffee in a large saucepan and bring to a high simmer, but not a boil. Cover and cook for 1 hour, taking care that it continues to simmer without coming to a boil.
  • Let the mixture cool and add the vodka, stirring to combine. Transfer to a bottle or jar, add the vanilla beans, screw on the lid, and keep in a cool, dark place for at least 2 weeks before serving (though it will taste even better as time passes).


Ages for 2 weeks or longer.
