Carefully rinse the apricots and let them dry in the shadow - on a piece of paper towel. Cut the apricots in halves, remove the stones (pits) and slice the fruits. Put apricots and stones in a clean glass jar with tight-fitting lid. Cover with clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof). Let steep for 4-5 weeks in a dark place at room temperature, 18-20°C (64-68°F). Shake lightly or stir with a wooden spoon and taste it from time to time. Strain and filter your infusion into a clean glass bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid. Store (age) for at least 1 month in a dark place at room temperature before serving.
