This is better than the name brands.
2 sterile 1quart mason jars
2 cups strong brewed coffee
Two-1/2inch pieces vanilla bean
2 cups sugar
Vodka or Rum
In a saucepan, add coffee, sugar and vanilla beans.
Simmer for 5 minutes. Cool.
Dived vanilla beans and syrup between the mason jars and fill with vodka.
Add lids and caps. Seal. Allow to age for at least 2 weeks. 2 months is better.
Shake occasionally while aging. Pour into the bottle you've chosen to serve it in.
I leave the vanilla bean in the bottle, your choice.
