Cherry Vanilla Vodka

It has been snowing in Dallas all day. It's cold and yucky outside. Tonight is a good night for hot chocolate, but why drink hot chocolate to warm you up when you could drink cherry vanilla vodka to warm you up. And the best part is, I don't have school tomorrow.

Cherry Vanilla Vodka
1 bottle 750 ml Svedka vodka
1 lb. cherries, pitted
1 c. sugar
1 vanilla bean

Split vanilla bean down the middle, length-wise. In medium pot, add cherries, sugar and vanilla bean. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes. Cool slightly. Add cherry mixture and vodka to large jar. Let sit for 7 days, shaking jar every other day to stir mixture. Strain vodka using cheesecloth.
