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.

Do you have a coffee of choice Like Tasters Choice ?

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.

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.

What does “NR” mean? PC on HIGH for 10 minutes + do a NR

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.

Which proof should the Everclear be? There is a 151 and a 190 proof available, depending on where you live.

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!

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! :)
