Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring
often. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until the sugar is
dissolved. Cool to room temperature. Place the apricots in 1 or 2 large
decorative glass jars. Add the sugar syrup and vodka, stirring to blend.
Cover tightly and store in a cool, dark place for at least 1 month,
turning or shaking the jar every week.
Before serving, strain the liquid. It may be stored at room temperature
for up to 3 months. Refrigerate it for longer storage.
