Apricot Bourbon

  • 2½ cups good quality bourbon
  • 2 cups dry apricots, halved
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  1. Put all ingredients in a large Mason jar and close lid.
  2. Shake the jar until ingredients are well mixed. Let bourbon rest and shake once daily for 6 days.
  3. Strain the bourbon, reserving the apricots. Put bourbon back in the jar and close lid. Store the bourbon in a cool dry place. Reserved apricots may be stored in a sealable container in the refrigerator for several weeks.
