Here is a wonderful recipe from my dear Canadian friend, Marie Jan-Paul... This will no doubt lift your spirits... LOL!!
3/4 C premium instant coffee
4 C sugar (white)
2 C boiling water
1 pint Vodka
1 Vanilla Bean (split & cut)
Pour boiling water over coffee and sugar, mixing gradually so coffee doesn't lump. Stir until dissolved. Let Cool.
After cool, add vodka. Pour into 1/2 gal glass jug. Age 30 days, shaking each day. Strain, drink and enjoy!
