  • Small Jars or Bottles to store the extracts in 


  1. Drop the almonds into the bottom of your jar or bottle.
  2. Pour the vodka over the almonds and fill it to the top of the bottle. Put the lid on and close tightly.
  3. Place the vodka and almond mixture in a cool and dark place, like a pantry or garage, and let the mixture sit for 6 weeks. 
  4. Shake the mixture every 3 to 5 days for the entire 2 month period.
