Home-made "Malibu" Liqueur


Have you ever tried to make your own liqueur? It is very easy and trust me...it taste sooo delicious! 

Ingredients:

  • around 250 grams coconut shreds
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 410 grams evaporated milk
  • 530 grams condensed milk
  • 500 ml vodka
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla essence


Method:

1. To very big jar add coconut shreds, vodka and vanilla essence. Close jar and shake ingredients few times. 
2. Place jar in a cool place for one week and remember to shake it once or twice a day.
3. After 7 days sieve coconut mixture. To make a liqueur you will need just liquid but coconut shreds you can use in some dessert or maybe bake some drunken coconut cake :). 
4. Add to vodka all three milks: evaporated, condensed and coconut. Mix mixture. 
5. Pour "Malibu" into bottles. 
6. Keep it in fridge. 

Smacznego :)

Przepis po polsku

I found this cake very light and fluffy...and I don't think that I have ever eaten anything similar to this texture. It is between sponge cake and regular cheesecake.
