- hazelnuts, finely chopped
- 1 1/2 c
- 1/3 c
- 3 Tbsp

1In a glass bottle or jar, steep the chopped hazelnuts in the vodka for about 2 weeks in a cool, dark place, gently shaking the bottle every day.
2Gently pour the contents through a strainer or sieve, pressing hard on the nuts to release all the flavor.
3Follow this by 2 strainings through slightly dampened cheesecloth or large coffee filter; loosely cover the contents with plastic wrap, since the process may take several hours.
4In a very small saucepan, combine the sugar and water.
5Bring to a boil over moderate-high heat.
6Simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes.
7Let cool to room temperature.
8Stir in the vanilla.
9Funnel into a glass bottle, then funnel in the sugar syrup.
10Cover tightly; shake to blend.
11Let mature at room temperature, or slightly cooler, for at least 3 weeks.
