Place the hazelnuts in a bowl and cover with water. Let the nuts soak overnight then drain, discarding the soaking water. Using a blender, puree the soaked hazelnuts with 2 cups of fresh water until smooth, about 2 minutes. Pass the mixture through 3 to 4 layers of cheesecloth or through a nut milk bag. Season hazelnut creamer with a pinch of sea salt and liquid sweetener to taste.
