DIY Amaretto

Better than store-bought, this liqueur boasts a caramel flavor that is embellished with toasted spices, almonds and apricots. Not for immediate gratification, this process takes a month to complete but the outcome is well worth it. Toasting the spices and caramelizing the sugar make for a sweet, rich flavor that can’t be beat. Enjoy it in your favorite cocktails and toddies for over the top flavor. Whether you make a bottle to stock your bar or divvy it up for gifting, it is a fun liqueur to make.

We have Marcia Simmons at Serious Eats to thank for this inspired recipe. We modified her method only slightly by toasting the spices and bumping up a couple of the secondary spice flavors. Thanks, Marcia! It’s a winner.
