- 2 cups spiced rum, such as Kraken
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 1 star anise pod
- 1/2 vanilla bean, split
Add 2 cups of spiced rum to an airtight container or mason jar. 2. Add 3 cinnamon sticks and close container. Let steep 3 days, turning jar once or twice a day. 3. After 3 days, add 1 star anise pod, and 1/2 vanilla bean (split the bean open with a knife so that it can release its flavor). Leave all ingredients steep 4 more days, turning jar once or twice a day. 4. After 7 days, remove all spices and use rum as needed, or to make my Twice-Spiced Almond Nog.
