Here I'll show you how to make Coffee Liqueur for yourself! It's quite a process but it's well worth it, trust me. For the base, I used Sailor Jerry spiced rum. Its vanilla, cinnamon, and other spices only enhance the flavor profile of our liqueur, which you can for many coffee cocktails.
DIY Coffee Liqueur
· 300 ml (10 oz) Sailor Jerry spiced rum
· 50 g dark roast coffee
· 5 cocoa beans
· ½ halved vanilla bean
· 1 small piece of whiskey barrel oak
· 0,3 g Ceylon cinnamon
Sous vide the ingredients for 4 hours on 60˚C (140˚F). Let that cool before filtering and mixing with the Cold Brew Coffee Syrup.
Cold Brew Syrup
· 300 ml filtered water
· 20 g ground coffee
Leave it in the fridge for 12 hours, then filter it through a coffee filter. You should end up with around 250 ml of Cold Bew Coffee to which you add:
· 220 g demerara sugar
· 30g muscovado sugar
Stir until the sugar dissolves (avoid heating up to keep the cold brew… cold).
