Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Liqueur / Vodka

1  tsp.  chopped dried angelica root
1  3 inch  cinnamon stick
1    whole clove
1  pinch  nutmeg
1    vanilla bean, split
1  cup  water
2  cups  sugar
1  tablespoon  lemon juice
1/2  teaspoon  anise extract
1/2  teaspoon  banana extract
1/2  teaspoon  pineapple extract, (scant)
3  cups  100-proof vodka
1  teaspoon  glycerine
2  drops  yellow food coloring, (2 to 3)

1. Put angelica, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and vanilla bean in medium saucepan, add water. Heat to boil, remove from heat. Stand 15 seconds. Then pour through wire-mesh strainer, lined with a coffee filter, into a bowl. (It's important to work quickly or the spices will impart too strong a color and taste to the liquid.) Hold on to the vanilla bean, discard the other spices.

2. Rinse saucepan and pour liquid back into it. Add vanilla bean and sugar. Heat to boil, reduce heat and simmer 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

3. Add lemon juice, extracts, and alcohol, stirring to combine. Pour into aging container. Cap, and age in a cool, dark place for 1 week.

4. Then strain through a cloth bag set in a wire-mesh strainer over a large bowl. Repeat until desired clarity is reached. Stir in glycerine and food coloring. Bottle, seal, age for 3 to 6 months.
