- Vanilla Anise Whiskey: Score 2 vanilla beans and drop into 12 ounces rye whiskey (preferably small-batch rye). Add 2 pieces of star anise and let infuse in a mason jar (or the original whiskey bottle) for at least 24 hours. The longer you let it go, the stronger the flavor gets. If you want to infuse a full 750 ml (25 oz) bottle of rye, double these amounts.
