Fit the sieve with a damp coffee filter and strain the flavored vodka back into the jar. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Continue to boil for 2 minutes, until a clear syrup forms. Remove the pan from the heat and cool to room temperature. When the syrup is cool, add it to the Mason jar. Add the vanilla and glycerin. Seal the jar and shake it gently to blend. The liqueur can be transferred to a decanter.
