After the rising cost of vanilla in 2016, I started making my own. After a good six weeks, 20 vanilla beans and two bottles of vodka later…voila! I could write a big long article about it, but it’s already been done. Go on, I’ll still be here when you get back. 🙂
I don’t love vodka, so although I started the first two bottles with that, I decided to try Southern Comfort for this round. The vanilla beans are good to use over and over and over…so you do the math on the cost. I imagine the better the alcohol, the better your vanilla will be. Enjoy! I’ll never buy vanilla off the shelf ever again!
