This was great with just one cup of vodka. Also, I doubled the sugar water mixture and cooked it about five minutes more after it reached boiling stage. This made it more syrupy and just right for Amaretto.

Not quite as thick as store bought but with a good flavor. Better for recipes than for sipping, maybe.

I changed this recipe up just a bit to make it a little thicker and not as potent. I did everything the same, except instead of 2 cups of vodka I used 2/3 cup of absolute vodka. I slowly poured the sugar mixture into the vodka til it tasted just right. Very good!

Very tasty! I let the sugar-water mixture boil for 2 minutes to thicken it up a little bit more. It was very easy to make, and although it still wasn't as thick as the "real stuff" nobody complained...they were too busy drinking!

Tastes as good as "the expensive stuff". Added a drop or two of red food coloring to finish it off.

I make this recipe and pour into fancy bottles and give it with my Christmas gifts. A friend tells me that it tastes really really good after 6 months, but my share is always gone long before then.

This is great - so easy and tastes like the real thing - great for Christmas or anytime.

Good, but expensive since almond extract is so expensive. Easy too.
