home made amaretto

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.

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