Liqueur making is fun and easy and can be adjusted to your personal taste after minimal experimentation. Many people find commercial brand liqueurs too sweet; you'll have the option to adjust the sugar content and will find your lighter homemade versions just as tasty (sometimes better...!) and a lot cheaper, too...!

When you make your own liqueurs, they should mature at least a week before drinking, preferably a month in most cases. Aging tends to round out the taste, flavor, and brilliance and gives an all around better product. Be sure to keep a journal of ingredients, amounts, aging time, etc. for troubleshooting and to assure duplication of your product.

Liqueurs are not limited to use as an after dinner drink. Many liqueurs make a fantastic topping over ice cream, an exotic marinade or glaze, and a delicious dessert treat when mixed in coffee. The possibilities of making your own liqueur and using it in home baking are numerous and offer a substantial saving over store-bought products. Making Liqueurs for Gifts Bulletin includes the following chapters: Brief History, Steep, Strain, and Filter, Fine-Tuning, Presentation, Bottling Ideas, Labeling Ideas, Gift Giving Ideas, Sugar Syrup, Proportions, Fruit Liqueurs, Specialty Liqueurs, Herbal Liqueurs.

Storey's Country Wisdom Bulletins contain practical, hands-on instructions, pictures and sketches designed to help you master country living skills quickly and easily. From traditional outdoor skills to the newest gardening techniques, Storey's Bulletins provide a foundation of earth-friendly information for the way you want to live today.

Since the 1973 publication of Storey's first Country Wisdom Bulletin, our commitment to preserving the arts, crafts, and skills of country life has never wavered. We now have more than 200 titles in this series of 32-page publications, and their remarkable popularity reflects the common desire of country and city dwellers alike to cultivate personal independence in everyday life.
