Can't Find Kahlua? Make A Replacement With Just 3 Ingredients
By Christine Barba
If you'd like some caffeine with an added kick and Kahlúa is nowhere to be found, you may have some substitutes in your kitchen that act as equally satisfying alternatives.
If you're craving coffee and booze, you can whip up your own version of Kahlúa by mixing coffee and brown or white sugar and combining them in a pan.
After you turn down the heat, you can add vanilla extract and, depending on your preferences, rum or vodka, into your mock Kahlúa.
Pour the mix into a container, and you'll want to store it somewhere cold until it's ready to enjoy. Some recipes suggest that you may want to use double or strong-brewed coffee.
If you're not in the mood to make your own Kahlúa, there are plenty of other substitutes, like the Jamaican coffee liqueur Tia Maria or Mr. Black Cold Brew.
