Homemade Pistachio Extract Liqueur (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:

Combine vodka and extract in clean 1-quart jar. Bring sugar and water to a boil together. When clear (pretty much the moment the boil starts rolling), set aside and let stand until just warm. Add sugar syrup, glycerin and food coloring (if desired). Let stand for 1 month. Yilds approximately a fifth.

Units of measurement (unless stated otherwise)
1 cup = 8 ounces = 236ml
1 quart = 32 ounces = 944ml
1 tbsp (tablespoon) = 1/2 ounce = 15ml
1 fifth = 25.6 ounces = 750ml
1 tsp (teaspoon) = 1/6 ounce = 5ml
1 pint = 16 ounces = 472ml
