Apricot Cordial

(served with Coffee)



  1. In a heavy medium-size saucepan, simmer the apricots in water for 15 to 20 minutes or until liquid becomes a fairly thick syrup.
  2. Remove from heat and add all remaining ingredients. Pour into a non-aluminum container; cover and shake.
  3. Place in a cool, dark location for 3 weeks, shaking occasionally to dissolve sugar.
  4. Using a fine sieve, strain off the fruit. Pour liquid into glass jar, bottle or decanter. Reserve fruit. Makes 3 to 4 cups. Serve with your favorite Coffee!

Caution - Homemade coffees, wines and liqueurs do not have the shelf life of commercial brands! In many instances the use of extracts is preffered instead of cooking and breaking down fruits - to expedite the ageing process and prevent acidity or fruit sedimentation (this also sometimes prevents the natural flavours to permeate the liqueur)! Sugars, coffee, chocolates, and fruits added with water can introduce contaminants to liqueurs so refrigerate upon opening, serve and enjoy as soon as possible!
