1 cup pecan halves, toasted*
1 vanilla bean
1 750ml bottle bourbon
- Place toasted pecans and vanilla bean in a quart size mason jar. Pour bourbon over pecans and vanilla bean. Place on lid and swirl gently to mix. Allow bourbon to infuse at room temperature for about 5 days (remove lid and taste after 5 days. If a stronger pecan flavor is desired, allow it to infuse a few more days).
- Strain out pecans and vanilla bean. Add pecan infused bourbon to bottles. Use to make recipes including a Pecan Old Fashioned or Pecan Hot Toddy.
