Who doesn’t love to receive a homemade gift? I know I do and I cherish it much more than anything store bought. This easy Homemade Vanilla is the perfect gift to give this holiday season!
If you’ve been around for a while you might remember me making this vanilla recipe once before 5 years ago! But it was just so good (and easy!) so I decided to make a fresh batch to give away as gifts this year.
I also included a new updated label for you to print out for free!
Homemade Vanilla needs to sit for 1-2 months before use to make sure it absorbs into the vodka. If you wait until now to make it like I did because #life, just be sure to tell who you’re giving it to that it might not be quite ready for use!
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR HOMEMADE VANILLA
- Vodka (any vodka is fine but I wouldn’t use the super cheap stuff!)
- Vanilla Beans (5-6 per bottle)
That’s it! Two simple ingredients and you’ve got yourself some amazing homemade vanilla extract.
Cut your beans in half then slice each one lengthwise. Add them to your bottle.
Fill your bottle with vodka.
Attach your label and add some pretty ribbon and a fresh sprig of cedar or any other fun garnish!
I printed out my labels on card stock and glued them onto each bottle using super glue.
Easy peasy! A beautiful and delicious homemade gift that anyone would love to receive!
