Using a medium saucepan bring the water and both sugars to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir frequently and continue to cook until the sugar has completely dissolved, about 5 to 10 minutes.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool for 15 minutes.
Once the mixture has cooled stir in the vodka, almond extract, and vanilla extract. Let finish cooling if still warm before bottling.
Place the funnel into the mouth of a bottle and pour the liqueur in leaving about 1 inch of space at the top. Secure the top and print, cut out, and apply the labels. Tie with baker's twine if using.
Storing: Keep the bottles stored in a cool dark place like the pantry or a cabinet.
