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.

  • 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.
