  • 15 tablespoons ground coffee
  • 2 cups brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1 cup rum
  • 1 vanilla bean split horizontally


  1. Brew a strong pot of 6 cups of coffee with water and ground coffee (I filled my 12-cup capacity coffee maker up to 6 cups and used 15 tablespoons of coffee).
  2. Add brown sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add vodka and rum and vanilla bean.
  4. Pour into a 64 ounce jar and let sit in a dark, cool place (cabinet is fine) for 4 weeks, shaking every so often. Can store at room temperature or the fridge for up to 3 months.
