Approximately 1/3 cup lavender blossoms
1 mexican vanilla bean, cut open
1 cup sugar
3 cups vodka

All of that is currently in a mason jar in the basement.

Tonight I'll add about half a cup of fresh mint leaves. I haven't quite decided if I'll add it directly to the jar with the lavender, or if I'll steep it in a separate jar and add the resulting mint-vodka later. Either way, I don't have any fresh mint in the house, so I have to go out and get it. It can wait until after supper.

In a separate mason jar:
approximately 1/2 cup fresh mint
1/3 cup sugar
1+ cup vodka

I'll shake both jars every few days, and strain them in about a month. At that point I'll also taste, and decide how to blend them.
