I made some homemade Bärenjäger yesterday, and am going to make some Eierlikör today just cuz I'm feeling it!

Does anyone else make their own flavored liqueurs or aperatifs or digestifs or that sort of thing?

Would you share?

Just Skittles Vodka. & sure I'll share. & please share yours!

Empty the bag of Skittles into the bottle of vodka. BE SURE TO TAKE OUT THE GREEN SKITTLES OR IT WILL TASTE NASTY. Leave it to sit for two days to let the Skittles disolve into the vodka. Open and drink as shots, getting all the alcohol of the vodka with all the sugar of the Skittles and a lovely fruity flavour.

Enjoy!

I've never heard of that! LOL how cool!

The Baerenjaeger is really easy actually- pretty much equal parts honey and vodka, a bit of vanilla. Some recipes add things like cloves, lemon peel, a dry white wine, so it's fairly versatile like that. Just mix it up, and put in a place where you can give it a shake everyday for a week to 10 days. Then, if you've used bits of things, strain and bottle.

The Eierlikor is simple too- and not a diet drink, kids. This is small-glass sipper stuff.
This is the version I made today. Of course there are tons of variations.
10 egg yolks
2 c. sugar
2 c heavy cream
2 c light rum
2 t. vanilla
1/2 lemon- juiced

Mix it up- blender, whisk, whatever you got, and bottle, and that's it! This stuff can be used right away, but I think letting it sit a bit improves it as well.

It's not that far off from Vov, or zabaglione, or advocaat, or rompope, or eggnog...they're all sort of in that family.
Enjoy

That if funny! I've never heard of that either.

Has anybody tried Torani syrups in their vodka or other drinks. I just thought of it when Gue said, "lovely fruity flavour".

Funny you should ask about homemade liquers - I've got a jar of lime peels sitting in vodka, in an attempt to make my own limoncello, with limes instead of lemons. We've got a lime tree which produces lots so I thought I'd try that out.

I looked for a recipe on the Net. There were quick ones and one I found which takes a lot longer but is supposed to be more authentic. I'm trying the slow one since I'm not in any hurry. After letting the peels sit in the vodka over 3 months, giving it a swirl every week, I'm supposed to make sugar syrup and add it to the lime-infused vodka (after removing the peels, of course).

Got 2 weeks to go. I hope it turns out okay.

My dad used to make his own grappa, after making his own wine. The grappa was goooooood.

Wow! Grappa, now that is some serious put hair on your chest kind of a drink! I'm so jealous you have a lime tree and are making limoncello!

got my second batch of limoncello working right now, I have gotten so I do it by the gallon, friends seem to be keeping track when the next batch is ready.
Zesting 3 dozen lemons, then waiting 3 months is an exercise in patience, but sooooooo worth it!

Gue - Haha!

So kshe95girl, you need to tell us the recipe that you are using! You too Vichel! Do any of these limoncello recipes use the juice? or is it all zest-only? How retentive do you get peeling the fruit?- do you take off all trace of pith or does it not matter?
