I’m really enjoying Homemade Liqueurs and Infused Spirits. It has recipes for both unique liqueurs and copycat versions. This week, I put together some Strega, Kummel and Cynar using recipes from the book. Most of them use vodka as the base. Like all good things, you get out what you put into it. I used Grey Goose for my infusions, though you could use a less expensive vodka.
I’m not sure how close the copycat recipes will be be, or if it will be less expensive to make my own versions. But that wasn’t really the point of this. It’s fun, and I like the feeling of making things. Once you master the base recipe, it’s easy to start making your own adjustments. I’ll do a progress update when these are finished.
