Like amaretto? Well, this is the High Octane version.......

1 750 ml bottle neutral spirits (I use Everclear)
4 c sugar (you can use equivalent sweetening levels of honey or spenda - check the conversions out first!)
8 c water
3 oz *real* almond extract
1.5 oz *real* vanilla extract

Boil water and remove from heat. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Let cool a bit. Pour into 1 gallon container. Add remaining ingredients, and shake until well mixed. Let cool and drink!

Makes just over 3/4 gallon.

Variations:
- add 1 c juice of blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries or other preferred fruit, use fresh or frozen. Let soak for a day or so for the flavors to mix.
- Add 1 c chocolate liqueur

This stuff tastes like amaretto on steriods. The kick is hefty, and the hangover is godlike. Drink lots of water when using this.

Vicky - drinking a very lovely apple liqueur made from spiced apple cider and everclear.....
