I can't believe I haven't posted this! It's a big hit in my family, I get requests for it every year around Christmas. The key to this is to get your syrup thick before adding the vodka--this is what makes it indistinguishable from Di Saronno, at a much reduced cost.


  1. Combine water and sugars in a very large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Heat until the mixture is boiling and all sugar is dissolved.
  3. Reduce heat to low and continue to simmer for approximately 2 hours until mixture is thickened and syrupy and lightly coats a spoon.
  4. Remove pan from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  5. Add vodka and extracts and stir well.
  6. Pour into a bottle and seal.

I was skeptical that this would taste as good as the real deal- I was very pleasantly surprised! I did not simmer it on low- I turned the flame up and reduced it in much less time than the time stated and it was absolutely delicious! A keeper.

Don't be lethal as Bruce Lee. I give this great revooze. Made for P-A-R-T-Y Holiday Tag.
