Fry the onions until dark brown in a frying pan. Remove from pan and add the water, schnapps, raisins, jalapeno and garlic. Simmer for 12 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
In a blender, blend the onion mixture, balsamic vinegar, apple, pineapple juice, apple cider vinegar, molasses and lemon juice until smooth. Pour into the pan and add the remaining ingredients, except liquid smoke and Kahlua. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the liquid smoke and Kahlua, mix well and chill overnight before using.
