I've had this in my files for years but I've never made it. I thought posting might inspire me. I foresee the biggest problem will be allowing it to age properly before "sampling" it.

A version of "FRANGELICO" From Italy - great Hazelnut tasting liqueur.


  • 4 1/2 cups shelled hazelnuts
  • 2 teaspoons dried and chopped angelica root
  • 1/2 split vanilla bean
  • 1 fifth vodka
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon glycerin*

* Glycerin is a thickening agent and does nothing for the taste of the liqueur or cordial. It does however make a more rich and aesthetically pleasing drink.


  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Place hazelnuts on cookie sheet and roast in oven. When toasted, chop coarsely. Add nuts and all ingredients except water, sugar and glycerin to aging container and age for a month.
  3. At this point, boil the water and sugar together to make a syrup.
  4. Strain the nut mixture and add the cooled syrup to it.
  5. Add the glycerin and age for another 2 or so months.
