Kira’s Coffee Liqueur

1 lb Café Grumpy Heartbreaker Espresso (available online or substitute your favorite espresso blend)
6 tbsp. vanilla extract
5 cups vodka
8 cups turbinado sugar
4 cups water
Pinch of salt

1. In a large glass bottle tightly covered with cheesecloth, steep the coffee beans and vanilla in the vodka, unrefrigerated, for one month in a cool dark place.

2. Strain the liquid into a large stock pot and add the sugar, water, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat and let simmer for an hour, until the mixture begins to thicken but not caramelize. Stir occasionally to prevent the sugar from burning.

3. Let cool. Decant into Mason jars and seal tightly. The liqueur will be ready to drink immediately, but it will be very sweet. The sweetness will mellow over time, and the liqueur can be stored for up to a year, unrefrigerated, before serving.
