Make Your Own

Flavored Liqueurs

 

 

 

 

BASIC EQUIPMENT

1. 1 quart saucepan
2. Measuring cup
3. Measuring spoons
4. 1 quart bottle (32 oz.) or a fifth (25.4 oz.), empty and clean

 

BASIC INGREDIENTS

1. Spirits: vodka, gin, brandy, Scotch or grain alcohol
2. White granulated sugar
3. Water
4. Fruit extracts. Various brands of extracts are available at home winemaking stores. The French brand "Noirot" is highly recommended.
5. Glycerine. Adds body and smoothness.

 

BASIC METHOD

1. Make your sweet or medium syrup in the following way:
Sweet syrup - 2 cups sugar to 1 cup water
Medium Syrup - 1 cup sugar to 1/2 cup water
Combine the sugar and water in the saucepan and bring it just to a boil. Cool for few minutes.
2. Pour the required amount of syrup into your clean bottle.
3. Add the extract.
4. Add glycerine and coloring if required.
5. Fill the bottle to the top with the spirits. A liqueur made in a quart bottle will have a stronger alcoholic taste than one made in a fifth bottle.
6. Close the bottle and shake. Cool before drinking.
