Nalivkas (Fruit Liqueurs)

Hazelnut Liqueur 1

6 oz Hazlenuts
1 Vanilla bean (1 inch)
1 pn Allspice
1 1/2 c Vodka
1/3 c Sugar syrup
Chop the hazlenuts to release the flavor of the nut and add to vodka, vanilla bean, and allspice. Age for 2 weeks, shaking lightly occasionally. Strain and filter until clear. Add sugar syrup, if desired, and age for an additional 3 weeks. Ready to serve. Makes a nice gift and is nice over ice cream as well as an aperitif. Try using pistachios which also make a delicious liqueur. If flavor is too weak, add more nuts and resteep a week before adding the sugar syrup.
Hazelnut Liqueur 2

1/2 lb Hazelnuts, finely chopped

1 1/2 cup Vodka
1/3 cup Sugar
3 tbsp. water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
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. Gently pour the contents through a strainer or sieve, pressing hard on the nuts to release all the flavor. 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. In a very small saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a boil over moderate-high heat. Simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Stir in the vanilla. Funnel into a glass bottle, the funnel in the sugar syrup. Cover tightly; shake to blend. Let mature at room temperature, or slightly cooler, for at leat 3 weeks.
