7. yes, or 70% alcohol (140 proof)


1 cup your favorite alcohol with 7 vanilla beans in a glass jar.

You have to wait like 8 weeks shaking the bottle holding the beans (cut once lengthwise) which are completely immersed in the alcohol about once or twice a week.

BTW. Madagascar vanilla beans are running around $9.95 PER BEAN right now.

So like $80 to make a cup (8 fl oz) of homemade.

But the same bean in a bunch of 25 is more like $120... a much more reasonable $4.80 per bean.
