Vanilla Bean Liqueur Recipe


My Vanilla Bean Liqueur is a pure vanilla cocktail experience that can be enjoyed in cocktails or poured over cakes, ice cream and fruit for dessert.  It's also really easy to make.

HOME MADE
VANILLA BEAN LIQUEUR


INGREDIENTS
1 fifth (750ml) bottle of vodka
1 cup sugar
3 vanilla beans, split lengthwise
*Vanilla Beans for decorative effect, optional

TOOLS
1 Quart Infusion Jar (any glass jar with a lid), measuring cups, decorative bottles with screw tops, labels
*Optional: Large strainer, coffee filters
      
DIRECTIONS

    Store in the fridge or a cool, dark location for two weeks to one month. The longer you allow the infusion to distill, the stronger your vanilla flavor.
    Remove the split vanilla beans.
    At this point you can, if you like, strain out any of the vanilla seeds by filtering through a metal strainer lined with coffee filters.
    Pour into your decorative bottles, add a fresh, full vanilla bean for decoration if you like, label and enjoy or share or enjoy it yourself in my
