Equipment you may need
8-ounce swing top glass bottle
vanilla bean whole pods
Grade B (extract grade)
or bourbon (at least 80 proof; 100 proof is best)
Cut a slit down each vanilla bean lengthwise, then cut bean in half across to ensure it stays submerged in the bottle.
Add vanilla beans to bottle.
Fill bottle with vodka or bourbon and close seal.
Store in a cool place and shake regularly to release vanilla flavor. Vanilla is ready to use in 3-6 months, and flavor intensity increases with longer wait time.
Shake well before each use. If desired, replenish alcohol after each use to continue extracting flavor from beans. Replace beans after one year of use.
