Step 1

Gather your jar(s), alcohol and vanilla beans. You will need 4-5 beans for every 8 ounces (1 cup) of alcohol. Use a sharp knife to gently cut slits in the vanilla beans, lengthwise.

Step 2

Place the vanilla beans in jar (you may need to cut them in half to fit, so they will be submerged in alcohol). Fill with vodka. Secure lid tightly on the bottle and shake gently.

Step 3

Add labels to jars, or write the date on the bottle. Allow to steep/brew for at least 2 months before using, (although 6-12 months is preferred for best flavor), shaking the bottles occasionally.

Step 4

When running low, add more vodka to the bottle and brew again, reusing the same beans for up to one more batch.
