Yield: 3 cups
|2 cups||Smashed apricot pits|
|½ teaspoon||Ground cinnamon|
|½ teaspoon||Ground coriander|
|2 cups||Vodka 100 proof|
|1 cup||Sugar syrup (see recipe)|
Partly fill a cloth bag with the apricot pits (available at most health food stores). Smash with a hammer, keeping shells and meaty centers. Place smashed pits in a 1-quart container. Add cinnamon, corriander, and vodka. Store for 2 months in a cool dark place. Then filter through a cheesecloth lined strainer and discard fruit pits.
Strain a few times until clear. Add sugar syrup and age for an additional 2 weeks. Recipe may require some finetuning and apricot extract can be added to offer additional flavoring.
