DIY Apricot Liqueur
A combination of tart fresh apricots and sweet dried apricots make for the tasty and complex homemade apricot liqueur.
I found this was better with much less sweetener than other homemade liqueurs that I've made. In order to let the tartness of the fresh apricots come through, I settled on a 1:4 ratio of sweetener to infused spirit. Of course, you can always add more to taste.
Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
