  • I've made kahlua before and it tasted very nice. I did find that your recipe is quite good.

  • I made this awhile back & it's fantastic! I think I like it even better than the brand name stuff! Great recipe- easy & very inexpensive. Thank you! Lori.

  • I thought a cinnamon stick was an ingredient when I made it years ago. will try this one tomorrow.
