      Recipe Notes

      -You can use purchased vanilla syrup.

      -Make your own vanilla syrup by bringing a 1/2 cup of sugar and a 1/2 cup of water to a simmer, stirring to dissolve sugar.  Remove from heat and add 2 tsp vanilla extract or fresh vanilla beans from 1/2 a vanilla pod.  Allow to cool and then strain if using fresh vanilla beans.

      -If no vanilla syrup is possible, sweeten to taste with sugar and add a splash of vanilla extract.

          Vanilla Syrup
          1. Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Once it reaches a full boil and sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and allow to cool. Makes 1/2 cup syrup, or enough for 8 cocktails if using 1/2 ounce per. Will keep several weeks chilled in an airtight container.

          1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker half filled with ice. Shake until very cold, about 30 seconds. Strain into glasses and garnish with orange zest if desired. Serve immediately.
