“I have not tried this liqueur base. I'm posting this for safe keeping. I found this in Complete Book Of Small Batch Preserving. Pair one of these easily made liqueurs with freshly brewed coffee for a luxurious finish to a good meal. Both have an alcohol content of approximately 15% so they will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. Use one half of the base for each liqueur recipe.”
