Create the perfect DIY Holiday gift with Alpine Start

Here at Alpine Start we are always looking for fun ways to stay caffeinated and have a good time… so we went into the lab and cooked up this great tasting coffee liqueur using our Original Blend instant coffee. Just follow these simple steps - and if you get to it in time, you’ll have a fantastic gift to bring to those upcoming holiday parties!

For our recipe, we used a bottle of vodka from our friends at Mulholland Vodka.  It’s clean and smooth and when paired with Madagascar Vanilla beans and our coffee, made for a great taste. Here's what you'll need to make your own bottle:
Ingredients:
  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 8 sticks of Alpine Start Original Blend instant coffee
  • 1 750ml bottle of Vodka
Steps:
  • Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil
  • Slice open the Vanilla Bean and scrape out all the crystals to add to the boiling pot (add bean pod as well)
  • Boil until the simple syrup reduces to about half (around 30 minutes)
  • Open and pour in 8 sticks of Alpine Start Original Blend instant coffee to the mixture. Stir, and allow to cool
  • Combine the simple syrup (with the beans) and bottle of vodka in a sealable glass jar and store in a dark place for 10 days.
  • After 10 days strain the mixture and bottle in glass containers.
