How to Make Amaretto Liqueur
- Scrape as much pith from the rind that you can.
In heavy saucepan, add sugar, water and lemon rind and bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove lemon rind and discard.
- While hot, strain the simple syrup through a coffee filter and let it cool completely.
- Add vodka and extracts. Mix well and store in a well sealed bottle. Enjoy!
- Serve over ice cream or use to make your favorite coctail. This also makes a great homemade gift!
