This might be the simplest recipe I will ever share with you… Two ingredients, let sit, boom. Done. I found these cute little bottles online and got Avery brand labels from Staples and printed holiday themed labels so I could give them as gifts. Super thoughtful and you don’t have to worry about burning anything 😉 The longer these sit, the better the flavor. All my favorite people are getting these this year!

Homemade Vanilla Extract Gifts!

Homemade Vanilla Extract

Vodka or bourbon (I think the vodka is a crisper taste and the bourbon is a hint of smokey flavor)

Vanilla beans

bottles with lids

Wash and dry your bottles.

Fill with alcohol and drop in 2 vanilla beans. Let sit 2-3 months in a dark place.
