For centuries, apricots were considered an aphrodisiac in Europe. Its luscious curves, juicy flesh and sweet taste led people to believe that eating the seductive prune would unleash the powers of love. All we know for sure, though, is that fresh apricots make fine liqueur. Especially when you blend in some crushed fruit kernels and bring the distillate up to taste with quality brandy. And that's something we've been doing for ages.
