Then I filled the bottle just below the top, making sure to completely cover the vanilla bean.

I just used whatever vodka I had on hand.

I actually ended up using several different brands of vodka.

Then I just attached the labels to the bottles.

I wished that I had chosen different labels, so that they would lay flatter on the bottle.

I tied a pretty plaid ribbon to the top of the bottle and tucked in some faux eucalyptus.

It looks so cute.

This makes a wonderful hostess gift for the holidays.

You can add. more vodka to the bottle as you use it.

Make sure to shake the bottle every six weeks or whenever you think about it.

It is so delicious.

Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
