We have the perfect last minute Holiday D.I.Y, honestly, it only takes 3 ingredients and fifteen minutes!
2 Vanilla Beans per cup
Vodka or Burbon
Cut beans length wise, this speeds up the brewing time.
Place the beans in a glass jar.
Pour your choice of liquor, making sure to submerge the beans completely.
Now just let time do its magic, and in approximately 8 weeks they'll have the most delicious vanilla extract from scratch. Add a note reminding the recipient to shake the bottle once a week.
