   This recipie looks very similar to one found in: "Classic Liqueurs;
  The Art of Making and Cooking with Liqueurs" by Cheryl Long and
  Heather Kibbey.
   Combine sugar and 3/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil,
  stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer until all sugar is
  dissolved. Remove from heat and cool.
   In an aging container, combine apricot halves, almond extract, grain
  alcohol with 1/2 cup water, and brandy. Stir in cooled sugar syrup
  mixture. Cap and let age for 2 days. Remove apricot halves. (Save
  apricot halves, as they may be used for cooking). Add food coloring
  and glycerin. Stir, recap and continue aging for 1 to 2 months.
   Re-bottle as desired. Liqueur is ready to serve but will continue to
  improve with additional aging.
   Variation: For a more prominent 'bitter almond' flavor, add 4 apricot
  nuts,** split in half, to basic mixture. Leave in for 2 days to 2
  weeks depending upon depth of flavor desired. Remove and discard
  apricot nuts. Continue as directed.
   **Note: Apricot 'nuts' come from within the apricot pit. You may
  split pits yourself or obtain them dried at a health food store.
