Vanilla Vodka Creamtini
Flavored vodka mixes with Irish cream and orange liqueurs to make this sweet, sugar-rimmed cocktail.
Fill a clean and sterilized 1-quart jar with sugar. Using a sharp paring knife, slit one 4- to 6-inch vanilla bean lengthwise. Insert both halves into 4 cups sugar, making sure all of the bean is covered with sugar. Secure lid and store in a cool dry place for 2 weeks before using. (Will keep indefinitely.)
If you do not have vanilla vodka, substitute 1 cup regular vodka and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
