    1                    Tonka Bean -- * See Note
    1      Fifth         Vodka
    1      Cup           Sugar Syrup
 
 *tonka bean comes from a tree found in Brazil and Guiana; interesting and
 exotic aroma which is unusual and powerful.  
 
 Let the bean steep in the vodka for two weeks. Strain through cheesecloth
 and add the sugar syrup.  If the flavor is too weak, add a fresh bean and
 test the liqueur after a few days.  Steep the second bean for up to two
 weeks; this will probably be unnecessary as one average sized bean will
 usually do the trick.
