Servings: 48

Prep Time: 2 Months

Note: Very good, and gets better with age.

I generally make this by the quart and keep one aging in the cupboard until the one in use is gone. Make homemade vanilla ice cream with the vanilla beans when the bottle is empty.

Ingredients

  • Jar or Bottle
  • 5 vanilla beans, in your favorite variety (rule of thumb is 5 beans per 1 cup of alcohol)
  • 1 cup vodka, you can also use Bourbon, Rum or Brandy

Directions

  1. Use a knife to split the bean in half, leave about ½ inch at each end intact.
  2. Put your vanilla beans in your glass bottle or jar and cover with vodka.
  3. Close jar or bottle and store in a cool, dry place for at least 8 weeks. Give the bottle a shake every week or so. As you use the vanilla, simply add in more liquor to replace what you have used.
