2 cups white sugar

1 cups water

2 tsp. coffee

1 tbsp vanilla

1 bottle "4B Alcohol. - 25 oz. ( this is straight alcohol.  You can get it at the Liquor store.  Honest)

Note: We use to use a liquid coffee called "Camp" coffee.  It had chicory in it and seemed to mellow the flavour of the tia maria.  I still see it in the coffee section of the grocery store but you have to look up.  It's usually on the top self.

We used to make this a lot in the early 1970's.  Brown cows (1 1/2 oz. tia maria poured over ice and topped with whole milk or cream) were the "in" thing and I had a girlfriend who was totally hilarious when she'd had a few.

Makes: 48 oz.

In a 2 quart saucepan bring sugar, water, coffee and vanilla to a boil – stir constantly even when cooling.  Cool.

Add 1 bottle alcohol and stir well.  Pour into nice bottles .
