Instructions for Creating, Aging, Straining, filtering, and Drinking Your Honey Walnut Liqueur

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350F. Spread shelled nuts on a cookie sheet aking sure that they do not over lap and bake until lightly toasted and golden, (5-10 minutes)

Or you can toast nuts over medium heat in a heavy saucepan, tossing until lightly toasted (1-2 minutes).

Place your toasted nuts into a 1-liter jar. Add brandy and seal quickly so alcohol doesn’t evaporate.

Stand in a cool, dark place for 1 month, shaking occasionally. Strain and filter.

Step 2 & 3

Bring water and honey to a boil together, boil together for 2-3 minutes. Skim off any foam that may develop.

Remove from heat and add cinnamon and cloves to the hot liquid. Stand until just warm.

Add vanilla, orange zest and lemon zest to syrup. Add syrup to liqueur, seal, and steep for 2 days.

Strain and filter again.

May be served immediately, but better if aged 1 month

Straining and filtering

Use a cheesecloth to filter your Liqueur, 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 remaining 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.

Best served Chilled and within one month of making.
