Almond Liqueur

This is a two-part recipe. Make the basic syrup ahead of time, so it has time to cool completely, a day at least, more is fine.

Anytime I’ve made either the Almond Liqueur or the Jameson Liqueur for gifts, they’ve been at the top of people’s wish lists! They need to sit for several weeks to be at their best, so think of making them at least a month or so in advance.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: a bit more than 3 pints

Ingredients

Basic Syrup
1 ½ c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
2 c. water


Liquor Mixture
1 ¾ c. vodka (inexpensive is fine)
2-3 tsp almond extract
2 tsp vanilla
1 ¼ c. basic syrup

Directions

For the Basic Syrup, bring all the ingredients to a boil, reduce to a gentle simmer carefully for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, set aside to cool thoroughly. Overnight is best, longer is fine. Be careful, any syrup like this gets VERY hot and can cause bad burns.


The next day, mix the vodka, almond extract, vanilla and correct amount of Basic Syrup together. Store in a large clean bottle and store in a cool, dark place for at least 2 weeks (longer is better) before drinking. For gifting, pour carefully into some smaller, pretty, interesting or decorated bottles. Be sure they seal well.
