I've made sort of Kentucky Kahlua before. Those homemade Kahlua recipes all use vodka, but I thought...Bourbon would go equally well. Yepper, sure does!
This is just a place to start. I'm sure everyone will want to make their own adjustments, and choose their favorite Bourbon...I've used AAA and VW 12yr.
Bring 2 cups water and 3 cups sugar to a boil to make a simple syrup. Cool slightly and pour into an airtight container. Add a cup of strong, freshly brewed coffee. Split two or three vanilla beans lengthwise and drop 'em in. Add 3 cups
Bourbon and cap.
Let the stuff age a week or two. I've had it stand for over 2 months and was perfectly fine.
As a Kentuckian, I consider it my civic duty to drink Bourbon, smoke and bet the ponies. Its a tuff job, but someone has to do it...
