Any brand of vodka will do. We picked this brand because of the bottle and it was on sale.
For the small bottle we took 2 or 3 Vanilla beans and cut them in half to fit in the bottle, then split them lengthwise to expose the yummy insides of the beans. Place vanilla beans in your bottle and fill with vodka. Put lid on bottle and place in a dark, quiet spot for 6 weeks. As time passes the vodka will get darker and absorb the essence of the vanilla beans. This would make excellent Christmas gifts for neighbors and friends.
