  • 100 g coffee beans
  • 500 ml vodka
  • 150 ml rum dark or white, I used white rum
  • 1 lemon zest only

for the coffee syrup

  • 1/2 cup espresso coffee
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  • Roughly smash the coffee beans with pestle and mortar. If using a grinder/food processor just pulse, you don't want to grind the coffee just break up the beans
  • Place coffee beans in clean jar and add lemon zest, vodka and rum
  • pop on the lid, shake well and set aside for a week in dark cupboard
  • strain through 2 layers of muslin/kitchen roll
  • make coffee syrup by boiling the espresso with the sugar for 5 mins till thickens, allow to cool then add to the coffee vodka
  • pour the finished liqueur into a sterilised bottle and seal. It will keep for up to a year.


Use this as a liqueur, as part of a cocktail and for the most amazing bakes and desserts too.
