We enjoyed this liqueur in Assisi, Italy during our cooking class. It was incredibly tasty and so easy to make.
¼ Cup Fennel Fronds
1 Tbsp. Fennel Seeds
2 Cups Vodka
Simple Syrup (1 Cup Sugar and 1 ½ Cups Water)
Combine fennel fronds and fennel seeds in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid, add the vodka, then cover and let steep at room temperature for one week. When ready, prepare the simple syrup mixture of water and sugar. In a large pan, over medium heat, combine the water and sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved, approx. 3 minutes. Cool completely and set aside. After 1 week, remove the fennel fronds and the fennel seeds, and add the cooled simple syrup. Stir to combine. Store in the freezer. When ready to enjoy, serve cold with ice.
