Angelica Liqueur

Angelica Liqueur


1 teaspoon dried marjoram
2 green cardamoms
7 1/16 teaspoons ground allspice
1/16 teaspoon ground star anise
1/16 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/16 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 apricot kernel
2 fl oz. vodka
1/2 cup sugar syrup (recipe follows)
1 cup vodka
2 tablespoons fresh or dried angelica root
2 fl oz. vodka

In a mortar grind the cardamom seeds and half an apricot seed. Mix
with other spices (except angelica root) and place in a tight glass
jar or bottle and add 2 fl oz. vodka. After one week filter through
a coffee filter. Combine with sugar syrup and 1 cup vodka.

In a separate small glass jar combine the angelica root with 2 fl oz.
vodka. After two weeks filter through a coffee filter.

Add small portions of the angelica root extract to the liqueur until
you get a suitable flavour. Check the flavor after 2 months. If
necessary, add some more sugar syrup, vodka, or angelica extract.

Sugar syrup:

For herbal liqueurs it is best to use a sugar syrup which is made as
follows: In a saucepan combine 1 pound sugar, 1 cup water and
1/4 teaspoon citric acid. Heat the mixture and stir until the sugar
is dissolved. Allow to simmer on reduced heat for 15 minutes.
