    One of my relative used to make home made amaretto from 3 1/2 water, sugar, almond extract and a bit of freeze dried coffee, to which he added 1 pint Everclear.

    I don't recall it being particularly strong, but the more I think about Everclear, the more I wonder.

    Any advice?

    Aspirin.

    My brother in law used to make Kahlua in much the same way. Brain splitting hangovers are all I recall.

    my wife made some homemade soap several years ago and everclear was one of the ingredients. so off to buy some and when i got to the counter with 2 bottles the guy says to me "you know that stuff is very strong don't you" I look him in the eye and said i would be back for more in a couple of days.

    • 2 cups vodka
    • 2 tablespoons almond extract

    Directions
    1. Combine water and sugars in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat until the mixture is boiling, and all of the sugar is dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool for 10 minutes.

    Oof, Everclear. I haven't even thought about drinking that stuff in probably 30 years. No thanks.

    Chicago - that looks a lot safer than what my relative used. I may try that.
