For the vanilla extract. Try using vodka instead of rum. The flavor is much better. (09/14/2007)
You can get sweet almond extract at the following link:
As far as vanilla extract, I've been making it for many years trying different ways, different liquors. As long as your using liquor you're safe, lol. But what I've found to be the best is to use half vodka and half single barrel malt whiskey, use a mix of bourbon and madagascar beans. I personally use stolichnaya vodka and jack daniels single barrel malt whiskey. This half and half mixture gives a robust flavor to your vanilla. I would love to swap ideas anytime. Please feel free to email me. (03/21/2008)
