1 cup instant coffee
4 cups sugar
1/2 vanilla bean
1/2 cup vodka

Let age 3 to 5 weeks.


Orange Liqueur
Thanks to Kaye Lindauer

3 medium oranges
3 cups brandy
1 cup honey

Peel oranges, leaving inner white skin (pith) on fruit. Cut orange rind
into 2 1/2-inch strips. Reserve oranges for another recipe. Combine
brandy and the orange rind in a jar. Cover tightly and let stand at
room temperature for 3 weeks.
Remove rind; stir in honey. Let stand 3 days. Strain off clear portion
and store in airtight container. Cook with cloudy part. Makes 3 cups.


Egg Creme

8 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups brandy
1 can (15 ounces) sweetened condensed
milk [such as Eagle Brand]
1/2 cup water
1 cinnamon stick

Beat egg yolks in large mixer bowl until light; beat in sugar and vanilla
extract until the mixture is pale and creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in condensed milk until the mixture is blended well. Stir in brandy and
water until thoroughly combined. Pour mixture through fine-meshed
strainer into a clean container; repeat one or more times until no sedi-
ment remains. Pour liqueur into 2-quart glass or ceramic container;
add cinnamon stick. Cap tightly.
Let age in cool, dark place for at least 3 months - up to 1 year. Shake
the container weekly for the first month, or until there is no separation.
Remove cinnamon stick; pour aged liqueur through funnel into clean gift decanters of desired size. Cap tightly. Liqueur will keep up to 5 months
after opening - longer if refrigerated.
