    Recipe ingredients and directions:

    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 drops yellow food coloring

    6 drops red food coloring

    2 drops 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.
