• 4 vanilla beans
  • 8 oz vodka
  • Cutesy or manly bottle


  1. Give the beans a little massage to help release some of the beans from the pod. Split the beans lengthwise and place them in the bottle. Pour the vodka in the bottle, cover and shake. Place the bottle in a cool, dark place and let steep for at least two months. Give the bottle a gentle shake every few weeks, or when you can remember.
