    echo echo's Note:

    Sip in cordial glasses or dribble over vanilla ice cream. Probably my easiest liqueur recipe and very good. Since it's made with DRIED apricots, it can be made year-round. Years ago I gave this a couple times in a monogrammed pocket flask as a 21st birthday present. Cooking time is actually infusion time (at 5-7 days, it's a relatively short time for a fruit-flavored liqueur).

      I just realized as I was looking thought drink recipes that I had never reviewed this one. I made it about a year ago. I love Apricots and thought this might be a good one for me to try. I was soooo right. I am not a big drinker so I had to be careful not to over imbibe because this is smooth, sweet and delicious which makes it very easy to forget it is basically pure Vodka. If you like sweet liquors and/or Apricots, you'll love this. Seeing the recipe has me making plans to make it again. ? May 4, 2006<br/> Updating this on May 12th after making another batch- try adding a teaspoon each of Vanilla Extract & Almond Extract. It takes this liquer to another level.

      NOTE: When using dried apricots to make apricot liqueur, you can save the strained/infused apricots for baking, etc. :-)

      Excellent gift liqueur, whether in a monogrammed flask or a decorative bottle. Preparation is minimal and EASY. I would definitely suggest bottling with bits of the apricot reserved. It is pleasing to the eye as well as the palate, and the fruit bits are *excellent* on ice cream!
