Homemade Gulliano (Vargas and Gulling) 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 Cordials From Your Kitchen by Pattie Vargas and Rich Gulling:

Place angelica, anice extract, vanilla, banana extract, pineapple extract, tangerine extract, mace, cardamom, hyssop and fruit protector in clean 1-quart jar with tight fitting lid. Add vodka, cover, and let stand in a cool, dark place for 2 weeks. Shake every couple of days to prevent clumping.

Strain and filter. Boil sugar and water together until clear, then remove from heat and let cool. Add to vodka mixture and stir or shake until blended. Cover and age for 1 month.

*If you have trouble finding tangerine extract, you can make it by combining 1/4 teaspoon tangerine flavoring oil with 2 tablespoons 100-proof vodka. Or you can substitute 1/4 teaspoon orange extract in the recipe.

Units of measurement (unless stated otherwise)
1 cup = 8 ounces = 236ml
