How to Make It

Put split vanilla beans in a glass container that has a tight lid or seal. Pour vodka in the container, making sure to fully submerge the beans. Close containers tightly. Let sit in cool, dry place for at least a month. The color and flavor will get stronger with time.

Homemade Extracts

DIY extracts are not only cheaper than store bought, they are simple to make and easy to dress up as a present. Try making your own extract varieties with your favorite flavors. We tested vanilla, lemon, mint, and almond extracts.
