DIY Vanilla Bean Liquor {for New Year's Eve Vanilla Bean Champagne Cocktails}

Posted Dec 31 2011 4:44pm
It's New Year's Eve!!!

I can't believe it. This year feels like it's come and gone so fast and yet here we are. 

Christmas vacation has been amazing. A whole week {plus} off of work, which was more needed than I had expected and instead I got to spend all my time with my guy, visiting friends for holiday parties and vacation happy hours {that start at like 1pm} and being with my family. It's been so wonderful. The other blissful part of vacation was that I was able to cook, bake and blend everything my little heart desired.
I can sometimes get overwhelmed with all the magazines and recipe that I get in the mail because I so badly want to make so many things so this vacation was my opportunity to take the reins and really dig into to delicious treats to share during the holidays. I made gingerbread men,  oreo truffles , sugar cookies shaped like stars and snowmen,  bourbon whiskey balls , spiced holiday punch  and cranberry-port crumble . Everything was outstanding.
Something I had planned about a month back was to make my own liquor. I knew that around the holidays, and especially for New Years, that I wanted to have this vanilla liquor that I saw in a magazine my mother found from 2007 and it would be fabulous with champagne as well as just an all around delicious liquor for the holidays. So I got work, and 1 minute later I was done. It was the simplest thing I have ever done, the hardest part was waiting...One Whole Month! {DIY} Vanilla Bean Liqueur
