Plan ahead. This takes about 5-6 weeks to 'mature'.

I'm guessing at the number of servings since there were none given with the recipe.

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

1/2 lb
hazelnuts, finely chopped
1 1/2 c
vodka
1/3 c
sugar
3 Tbsp
water
1 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In 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.
2
Gently pour the contents through a strainer or sieve, pressing hard on the nuts to release all the flavor.
3
Follow 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.
4
In a very small saucepan, combine the sugar and water.
5
Bring to a boil over moderate-high heat.
6
Simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes.
7
Let cool to room temperature.
8
Stir in the vanilla.
9
Funnel into a glass bottle, then funnel in the sugar syrup.
10
Cover tightly; shake to blend.
11
Let mature at room temperature, or slightly cooler, for at least 3 weeks.
