I adapted this recipe from the original from pear liqueur recipe at eatboutique.com and it turned out so yummy.
750 ml. vodka (I used 1 liter)
Flavor companions: cinnamon, star anise, cloves
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
Put the apples and spice in mason jars, close the lids and shake them several times;
Put away the jars in dark and cool cupboard for 1 week. (Do not peek)
After a week, drain the liquid into a bottle;
Boil 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups water over medium heat to make simple syrup. It should take about 10 minutes (but mine took much longer. I also used palm sugar here. It has distinct flavor but tastes good;
Let the syrup cool a bit and pour into the bottle. Shake the bottle a bit.
The concoction is ready to drink but you can put back into the dark cupboard for 2-3 more weeks or months for even sweeter and more gorgeous elixir 🙂
