Instant Pot Kahlua Recipe

One of my favorite things to make in the kitchen is homemade cocktails. I tend to always make a variety of different moonshine recipes until the weather gets cool, that is when I turn to Kahlua drinks.

Homemade Kahula is simple to make and lasts a really long time when properly stored. My husband and I love having it snuggled up by the fire night after the kids go to bed. Not only that, but it makes a great gift to give to friends and family.

Storage

A common question is should homemade Kahlua be refrigerated? The answer is, it doesn’t need to be. You can store it in a mason jar with the lid tightly sealed in a cool dark area. You want to make sure it is not exposed to direct sunlight. 

How long does homemade Kahula last?

When stored properly in a sterilized jar, Kahula will last for 3 to 4 years. 

How do I know if Kuhula has gone bad?

If you notice that your Kahula smells off or has a watered-down flavor then you will know that it has gone bad.

    1. I am so sorry, I forgot to include that important information. πŸ™‚ Just before you add the everclear, I corrected it now. πŸ™‚

  1. If I choose to use a dark rum, are there suggestions on a brand? And would it be same amount as ever clear? ( allergies to vodka lol)

    Thanks!

    1. I hear dark rum is just as delicious. Equal amounts should be good. I would just do a taste test midway as you are pouring to make sure the rum taste is not too strong. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    1. A natural release is when after your pot finishes cooking you let your pot sit and naturally release its pressure. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes. If your pressure has not fully release u can switch to vent to finish.

  2. Can I use 6 cups of strong brewed coffee instead of the instant? And then does it still need to pc for 10 minutes? This recipe sounds delicious.

    1. Yes, you sure can use strong brewed coffee. I would probably reduce the PC time to 5 minutes.

    1. No, I actually use the cheapest brand and find the final product taste delicious. If you use any better quality above that, you will get even better results.

    1. Yes, you can use freshly brewed coffee. You can reduce the PC time to 5 minutes if you use it.

  3. It looks like Everclear is available from 120 to 190 proof. Which would be best (not so much for kick but for taste)?

  4. Hi! Question about sterilized mason jar I’m new to that process, you said If they have been sterilized, so the mason jars do not need to be sterilized before hand? Thanks! I can’t wait to try.

    1. NO, it is okay if they are not sterilized unless you plan on trying to seal them. Sealing them is a bit tricky but then again I am not a master at canning at all. :/

  5. I made this today. It tastes so much better than store bought, love it and it’s so easy. Filled 3 qt jars perfectly.

  6. I just bought espresso coffee for another recipe and I’m wondering if I can use that instead of instant coffee and if so any idea of how much? Thanks. Can’t wait to try this.
