I received a product sample for review purposes.
I have got several songs stuck in my head right now that I can’t quit singing. It’s one of the things I love about this time of year. And then, of course, there’s the lights and scenery everywhere. There’s something magical in the air during December. Even the grumpiest people seem more pleasant to be around. I even love going to parties during the holidays but even more than that, I love hosting my own parties. For that reason, I’m always searching for beverages I believe my guests will enjoy. If you love hosting parties as much as I do, you’ll want to learn about my latest products from Van Gogh. Flavored vodka to be exact. Now if these festive flavors don’t make your “spirits” bright, I just don’t know what will. These full-flavored beverages come in all of my own favorite flavors from Double Espresso to Dutch Caramel. According to the information, I found on the Van Gogh website, “every flavor undergoes an all-natural double infusion process, giving each drop of vodka its vibrant, signature flavor.” They put a lot of thought and love into every flavor.
It is so cold outside right now, just looking outdoors makes my teeth chatter. I can’t think of a better day to warm my innards than today. It is by far the coldest day of the year here so far. The water in my birdbath is frozen solid. After looking over some scrumptious recipes, I decided to try one. The adult mocha is definately a hit. I encourage you to go check out all of the recipes and let me know which one or ones you’d like to create.
I’m going to be using some of my vodkas to make my own vanilla extract. I’m waiting on my vanilla beans to arrive and I can’t wait to get started. I use a lot of vanilla extract in my baking so I thought it would be fun to make my own. After finding a recipe, I concluded that it’s so easy to do and it will be ready to enjoy in about 8 weeks so I’ll be able to use it for my Valentine baking.
Here’s what you need: Vanilla Extract Recipe
Halfen ingredients to make in 4 oz jar.
If you buy split vanilla beans, add them directly to the vodka in the jar. If they’re whole beans, split before adding them in the jar.
Close the jar and shake once a week. In about 8 weeks the extract will be ready. Of course, the longer you wait for it the better flavor you’ll get.
