  • 3 Vanilla Beans
  • 2 CU Dark Rum (as high a proof as you can find)


  1. For strong vanilla, crack the beans before soaking
    For weak vanilla, soak beans intact
  2. Soak the vanilla beans in the alcohol.
  3. Cap and shake daily for two weeks.
  4. Strain and put in bottle for storage


  • Try 6 vanilla beans
  • Try letting things marinate for three weeks.
  • Try crushing the beans before soaking
  • Try with Vodka OR White Tequila (two other alcohol bases that I found mentioned on the internet.)
