Thursday, February 19th, 2009

A tasty liqueur suitable for company and family gatherings. (For more liqueur recipes—Bailey’s, Irish Cream, Maple Syrup Liqueur, etc; herbal recipes, and more, please check out the ‘category’ sections of betweenclosefriends.com) This recipe will yield a 16 ounce bottle.

Ingredients: 3 oz chopped raw almonds

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1½ c vodka (12 oz)

½ c sugar syrup

  1. Place the almonds, a pinch of cinnamon and the vodka in a sterilized lidded glass jar.
  2. Shake well to combine all the ingredients together, then cover and steep for 2 weeks.
  3. After the 2 weeks are up, strain the resulting liquid into another lidded glass jar. Add the sugar syrup to sweeten your Almond Liqueur. (To make the sugar syrup, combine ½ c sugar dissolved in ½ c boiling water, then allow to cool)
  4. Shake to thoroughly combine the flavours. Allow the Almond Liqueur to sit for a few weeks more to mellow the flavour.
