Kights' Killer Coffee liqueur (lower carb)

Joseph Kight


We love coffee liqueurs, but they're usually so full of sugar that they're hard to enjoy (especially with a diabetic in the house). This recipe, which uses Stevia In The Raw zero calorie sweetener, is quick, easy, tasty and perfect to give as a gift! We had several bottles of caramel schnapps left from our annual Christmas fondue party, so we decided to experiment (good call!). The hint of cocoa helps to smooth the bite of the coffee, too. Cheers!
