 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
                         Vanilla Beans -- * See Note
    1      Fifth         Vodka -- * See Note
    1      Cup           sugar syrup
 
 *if the vanilla beans are shorter than 5-6 inches, use three beans,
 otherwise two
 
 *I use Myer’s dark Jamaican rum and this is absolutely divine, especially
 in a cup of coffee on a cold day
 
 We also add glycerine
 
 Let the beans steep in the vodka for two weeks.  Remove the beans and add
 the sugar syrup.  Shake well and enjoy.  I usually scrape the seeds
 somewhat (returning the scraped seeds to the rum) before soaking the
 beans.  This gives a little more intense vanilla flavor.
