I enjoy it especially when made with rum or bourbon.

If you are unsure about it make a half pint using one bean as a test, no need to risk a fifth of good booze on your first experiment.

Good luck!

The consensus appears to be that your friend is "overly cautious".

Quick question did you buy pure or imitation vanilla extract?
