4 cups water
2.5 to 3 cups sugar
2 oz. instant coffee granules
1 vanilla bean
A fifth (or 1 liter) vodka
Bring water to a boil; reduce heat and add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Remove from heat; and stir in instant coffee. Cool.
Pour vodka into a large glass container with a cover that seals tightly.
Add coffee mixture, and stir or shake to mix it all up. Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and open it up. Place it in the vodka mix, close it up tightly and let it sit for 2 or three weeks. Pour into clean bottles and give as gifts. Enjoy! -Diana
