Amaretto Liqueur Recipe
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup water
2 dried apricot halves
1 tbsp almond extract
1/2 cup pure grain alcohol and
1/2 cup water
1 cup brandy
3 drop yellow food coloring
6 drop red food coloring
2 drop blue food coloring
1/2 tsp glycerin
Combine sugar and 3/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil,
stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer until all sugar is
dissolved. Remove from heat and cool.
In an aging container, combine apricot halves, almond extract, grain
alcohol with 1/2 cup water, and brandy. Stir in cooled sugar syrup
mixture. Cap and let age for 2 days. Remove apricot halves. (Save
apricot halves, as they may be used for cooking). Add food coloring
and glycerin. Stir, recap and continue aging for 1 to 2 months.
Re-bottle as desired. Liqueur is ready to serve but will continue to
improve with additional aging.
Variation: For a more prominent 'bitter almond' flavor, add 4 apricot
nuts,** split in half, to basic mixture. Leave in for 2 days to 2
weeks depending upon depth of flavor desired. Remove and discard
apricot nuts. Continue as directed.
**Note: Apricot 'nuts' come from within the apricot pit. You may
split pits yourself or obtain them dried at a health food store.
