2 cups granulated sugar

1 cup quality cocoa powder

4 1/2 cups water

1 Tablespoon Kahlua, or other coffee liqueur

In a large saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cocoa, vanilla, salt, and espresso. Add the water, whisking until smooth.  Cook over low heat until the ingredients are dissolved.  Remove from the heat and stir in the liqueur.  Transfer the mixture to bowls or containers and refrigerate until cold, preferably overnight.
