We made this a couple of years ago and while it's clear that it's coffee liquor, it's also clear that it's not Kahlua.

I actually find this recipe to taste like a high quality Kahlua. (As long as the best Vodka is used.) My guests agree. I suppose we all have our own take and taste on all recipes and concoctions. That- is what makes it interesting. I have found that when a friend asks me for a recipe, they substitute ingredients and then wonder why the product is not as good- or not good at all. My friends do not cook- it is a shame.

White Russians. YUM, but an equally impressive hangover. I can have one for a birthday treat.
