Apricot Liqueur

READY IN: 120hrs 2mins
Recipe by echo echo

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).

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