vanilla bean infused jalapeno vodka

if you are using pre-jalapenoed vodka, just toss one whole bean of madagascar vanilla in the bottle and let sit for at least 2 days.  

or, you can use a high quality plain vodka:

pour into a glass jar and add one whole JALAPEÑO with 3 slits cut lengthwise (this will allow easy infusing access without messing up the vodka) and one vanilla bean.  remove the JALAPEÑO  after one day.
