A couple of friends and I got together yesterday with some bottles of booze and had a great time.Â Â We sloshed a little vodka, rum, and bourbon into bottles with vanilla beans and are made our own Vanilla Extract.Â
My hubby the auction freak (buys everything at an auction that isÂ a good deal) had several small bottles that we used.Â
We cut the stem of the vanilla bean up the middle leaving the top together for easy removal, filled the 2 and 4 ounce jars and added one bean to the small jars and 2 beans to the bigger jars.Â
The house was alive with the smell of Vanilla.Â It reminded me of baking sugar cookies and made me want to bake aÂ batch.
Viki and Denise would do the filling of the bottles and poke the stem of the vanilla into the jar.Â Â
