Utensils Tips

Here is a list of the simplest utensils that you can use; the ones Mom should already have in the kitchen:)

– cheesecloth
– saucepan
– small funnel
– glass bottles, or storage containers, for bottling and serving, you can either use the glass Jar you used before, or just buy a second one.

Shake and let steep for 3 days, then add the vanilla bean and let steep for additional 3 to 5 days.

Aging First round

Shake well and store away from sunlight in a cool and dry place for a minimum of 2 weeks.

Step 2

Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and heat until sugar is dissolved. Let cool, then add to the hazelnut mixture.

Put in the Vanilla bean at this point to and close the container.

Second round of Aging Straining, filtering, and Drinking Your Hazelnut Liqueur

After 1 week or more of further aging, strain your liqueur through several layers of cheesecloth.

It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point where you have strained everything out, you can gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice.

If you still need to strain your liqueur further due to lack of clarity, you can strain it 1 more time through a coffee strainer.

Congratulations, You Have Completed Making this Awesome Orange Liqueur Recipe!

You now need a bottle and a label which are cool enough to compliment your hard work. Honestly, if you put it into a cheap bottle, people will make fun of you. BUT, if it looks good, people will rave about it!
