Homemade Amaretto (Thomas) Recipe

Miscellaneous Untried Recipes

This is from a collection of recipes from books I own, but which I haven't myself tried yet. However, you can have faith that at least the authors themselves have tried them, so they're not deadly or anything.

From Sweet Sips 2 by Charles Thomas:

** Finishing Formula is a glycerin mixture that the author sells himself. Since I never use glycerin, I couldn't guess what else might be in it, but possibly an antioxidant fruit protector powder. You only need this if a thicker mouth feel is crucial for your enjoyment of a liqueur.

Chop almonds, put in jar with apricot, brandy, vodkja, vanilla and orange peel. Steep 6-8 weeks. Strain and filter. Boil sugar and water together until sugar is dissolved, and let cool. Add to mixture. Bottle and/or serve.

Units of measurement (unless stated otherwise)
