Drunken Beans

READY IN: 58mins
Top Review by Bergy

The beans were tasty but I didn't think the vodka added that much to the flavor, especially for the amount of vodka in the recipe - next time I'll drink the vodka and use a bit o rye with the beans. It was good and I will make it again but change it around a bit - like use 1/4 cup rye instead of vodka. Thanks Dancer Love your recipes
