So after doing some research on how to make vanilla extract, I've come across quite a few unique blogs and articles on the does and don't of making homemade vanilla extract. So I decided to make extract from both popular and different choices of alcohol. I've started with the standard vodka; Belvedere (hey, it was on sale for $20) 750 ml bottle, crammed with about 24 Madagascar vanilla beans Remy Martin (Left over from making tiramisu) roughly 275 ml, crammed with 10 Mexican vanilla beans Bombay Gin (Gift from a friend at a party) 750 ml, again, crammed with 24 Mexican vanilla beans I plan to also use white rum, bourbon, tequila, and whiskey. I've heard good things about vanilla extract made from gin and tequila and I can't wait to test everything out. Has anyone else here use anything other than vodka or rum for homemade vanilla extract?
