Hazelnut Liqueur

Ingredients

1/2 pound Hazelnuts finely chopped
1 1/2 cups Vodka
cup Sugar
3 tablespoons Water
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

Preparation

1
In a glass bottle or jar, steep the chopped hazelnuts in the vodka for about 2 weeks in a cool, dark place, gently shaking the bottle every day.
2
Gently pour the contents through a strainer or sieve, pressing hard on the nuts to release all the flavor.
3
Follow this by 2 strainings through slightly dampened cheesecloth or large coffee filter; loosely cover the contents with plastic wrap, since the process may take several hours.
4
In a very small saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a boil over moderate-high heat.
5
Simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Stir in the vanilla.
6
Funnel into a glass bottle, the funnel in the sugar syrup. Cover tightly; shake to blend. Let mature at room temperature, or slightly cooler, for at leat 3 weeks.
7
Homemade version of Frangelico. "Glorious Liqueurs" Mary Morris.
