Boozy gifts, part 1

Hello! Today I have started making an exciting liqueur.  I found the recipe in an old issue of Country Living – Apricot and Lavender liqueur.  The idea is that when it is finished you use a measure of the liqueur and top it up with prosecco to make a kir.  Ok, it might be a bit summery come December but surely a reminder of summer at midwinter is no bad thing?  It is made by melting sugar in dry white wine and then simmering fresh apricots and lavender sprigs.  When this is done vodka is stirred in and then it is all left to infuse for a week.  It smells beautiful and I’ve made double so I can have some too! I wonder who would like some of this?
