Apricot liqueur

Yield: 3 cups

Measure Ingredient
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.
