If you like Amaretto, the sweet almond liqueur, you are going to love how easy it is to make at home. I think the recipe is perfect as it is, but adjust the sugar to your taste.
The recipe doubles and triples easily, so it is easy to make a lot and decant into small bottles to give as gifts.
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups vodka
2 tablespoons almond extract
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1. Combine water and sugars in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat until the mixture is boiling and all of the sugar is dissolved. Remove the pan from heat and cool for 30 minutes.
2. Stir vodka, almond extract and vanilla extract into the mixture.
3. Strain through a coffee filter for a clearer Amaretto (I skipped this step).
4. Decant Amaretto into sealed bottles. The Amaretto can be drunk immediately, but will get better with age.

‘The Future’, new from DTHPDL (pronounced Deathpodal), is deliciously different. Messy, but somehow glamorous, it’s definitely music for cocktail hour(s). Crank up the volume and let that bass course through you.
