Ingredients
 

  • 750 mL Vodka or Rum high proof, 50%
  • 500 g Cacao Nibs
  • 3 Vanilla Beans Split

Simple Syrup:

  • 250 g Brown/Demerara Sugar
  • 250 g Water

Instructions
 

  • Add both the cacao nibs, vanilla beans and your liquor to a swingtop bottle
  • Rest for 2 weeks, shaking periodically
  • Add 1:1 simple syrup to your bottle
  • Rest for a further 1-2 days
  • Voila, brown creme de cacao!

Notes

Alternatively, if you don't have the patience to wait several weeks, you can use heat to speed up the process. Gently heat the bottle in a water bath (30-60 mins) in place of the two weeks resting.
