Coffee Liqueur V:
2 cups ground coffee beans (select a strong, full-bodied blend, such as French Roast)
3 cups boiling water
1+1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 teaspoon glycerin
1 teaspoon Homemade Vanilla Extract
3 cups vodka

Put the ground coffee and boiling water into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Line a fine-mesh sieve with a coffee filter and strain immediately into a 4-cup glass measuring cup. Combine the coffee and the sugars in a medium saucepan. Heat for 5 minutes over low heat, stirring constantly, just until the mixture begins to steam (do not bring to a boil). Remove the pan from the heat and let cool. Stir in the glycerin, vanilla, and vodka. Using a funnel, divide the liqueur between two 20-ounce decanters.

The Coffee Liqueur should be ready to drink in 3 or 4 days and has a shelf life of 2 to 3 months.
