There is a long tradition in Italy of families and the church producing their own special liqueurs through both distillation and infusion.

Danzig Goldwasser has one of the most storied histories in the wine and spirits world. Goldwasser has been made at least since 1598 (and allegedly was served at least as early as 1549). it was served to Peter the Great, who supposedly ordered a continuous supply, and Catherine the Great.

I really like Kahlua and was a bit concerned when they started making the Kahlua spices line (like Vanilla, Peppermint … Read more
November is National Pomegranate Month. To kick off the month, we are posting a review of Pama Pomegranate liqueur. Pama is a good as it sounds (unless you are a pomegranate hater). Buy yourself a bottle and whip up pomegranate drinks all month long. The plus is that they make great drinks to serve guests for Thanksgiving.
Pomegranates are sensuous – they are ripe, lush and bursting with deep red fruit – and they scream … Read more
We were lucky enough to receive a little care package from our friends at Nova Marketing and Hiram Walker to help ease us into fall. One of the items in that care package was the Hiram Walker Caramel Apple Liqueur. Since it’s close to Halloween, I will put it out there that it would be perfect for Halloween. Imagine the number of apple drinks you can whip up.
The Caramel Apple Liqueur is a member … Read more
St. Germain is a liquor that is made from macerated elderflower blossoms that are then blended with spirit made from grapes. It brightens a Champagne cocktail, makes Gin sing and is a potent addition to any punch bowl.
