I love adding a drop of vanilla to my coffee, hot chocolate, cherrios, tea, icecream, everything and anything, to give it a bit more of a scrumptious flavor.
When I was a kid, we always had a gigantic bottle of La Vencedora Mexican Vanilla extract and I never could understand why anyone would opt for imitation.
The only problem was the bottle was SO gigantic, it was a hassle to use, especially for kids, and mostly reserved for big baking projects. Now that I have my own kids, and I realized I can get them to drink anything by saying it's either A)Magical, or B)Unicorns like it, I decided what could be more simple than creating a magical potion that I could store in the fridge and use over and over again.
First step was to find the perfect bottle. I did quite a bit of searching for a perfect dropper bottle. I wanted something that looked ancient and legit. A cobalt blue glass bottle with a dropper was perfect! I got mine on Etsy
but you can also find them on Ebay.
Be sure to get the kind with the dropper.
