one little drink can't hurt, right?


i just made my first batch of homemade liquor - amaretto, actually. it's so simple and wow, does it taste good. too sweet, really, but i think it will be tasty for amaretto sours. the recipe is from marjory at allrecipes.com. and now i need to think of a good reason not to drink some at 2:06 pm while the kids are napping...

amaretto

1 c. water
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 c. vodka
2 Tb. almond extract
2 tsp. vanilla extract

mix first three ingredients in a saucepan. heat until boiling and sugars are dissolved. remove from heat and cool ten minutes. stir remaining ingredients into sugar mixture. store in a sealed bottle. (i used a sparkling water bottle)
