“Sip in cordial glasses or dribble over vanilla ice cream. Probably my easiest liqueur recipe and very good. Since it's made with DRIED apricots, it can be made year-round. Years ago I gave this a couple times in a monogrammed pocket flask as a 21st birthday present. Cooking time is actually infusion time (at 5-7 days, it's a relatively short time for a fruit-flavored liqueur).”
