AMARETTO LIQUEUR

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.
