In saucepan boil 3 1/4 C. water then add instant coffee (freeze dry is best), cook for 2-3 minutes then take off heat and let cool. In another saucepan, boil 4 C. water sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil and when the sugar dissolves cook for another 20 minutes. Take off heat and let cool.

Now after both mixtures have cooled completely mix. Then add vanilla and vodka. You can substitute the vodka for dark Bacardi or Brandy. I have used Captain Morgan's Rum and find it to be the best. Pour into bottles and let sit for a couple of weeks at least. The amount of Rum you use is up to you...the more the better kick it has.... enjoy.
