Hazelnut Liqueur (GL)
Author/Submitted by: GLORIOUS LIQUEURS
0.50 lb Hazelnuts, finely chopped
1.50 c Vodka
0.33 c Sugar
3.00 tb Water
1.00 ts Vanilla extract
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
Gently pour the jar's contents through a regular strainer or sieve,
pressing hard on the nuts to release all of their flavor. Follow this
by two strainings through slightly dampened cheesecloth. For true
clarity and professional looking results, pour the strained mixture
through a large clean coffee filter placed inside a funnel or clean
coffee cone; loosely cover with plastic wrap since the process may
take several hours.
In a very small saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a
boil over moderately high heat. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Let
cool to room temperature. Stir in the vanilla.
Funnel the strained hazelnut mixture into a glass bottle, then funnel
in the sugar syrup. Cover tightly; shake to blend. Let mature, at room
temperature, or slightly cooler, for at least three weeks.
