Preparation of apricot liqueur

  1. To prepare the apricot liqueur, start by washing the fruit thoroughly , dry it well and then cut it in half.
  2. Place the apricots and the pits, 3 of which are crushed , in a large glass jar. Add the cinnamon sticks and cover with the alcohol. Close with the lid and leave to rest for 10 days in a dry and cool place, remembering to shake the container every day.
  3. After the necessary time, prepare a syrup by melting the sugar in a saucepan with the water; bring to the boil, turn off the heat and leave to cool. Filter the alcohol in the glass jar and add it to the syrup. Leave to rest for another seven days before filtering again and bottling.
  4. At this point comes the hardest part: you have to let it rest for at least a month (better if you can resist for two).
