Chocolate Liqueur

Ingredients:
6 egg yolks
½ of 0.5L ( 8 oz ) Everclear 190 proof ( or 10 oz clear vodka if you don’t want it too strong; not flavored, not the cheapest one , you can try it with white rum, or rum & vodka or Everclear - but the classic is done with Everclear)
1 bar (or 3,5-4 oz) dark bitter chocolate, plain
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup milk
1 pkt Vanilla sugar, or 1 teaspoon Vanilla

- Whip egg yolks with sugar and vanilla until white & fluffy and sugar is completely dissolved ( taste it).
- Dissolve chocolate in a pot; add milk, and stir. No clumps! Put aside, let it cool off.
- Go back to the beaten eggs, pour slowly the dissolved chocolate into it, don’t stop stirring! Again, no clumps.
- Get the bottle of Everclear and making a thin stream pour it into the above mixture. Stir, stir, stir ( this is very important! If you need a third hand ask your spouse for help )
- Pour the ready mix into a clean, clear bottle, nice shape is a + ( you can use an empty clear liquor bottle, make sure it has a cork or twist cap). Leave 3 inch room from the top. Close the bottle. Shake it well.
- Leave outside in a room temperature for 30 minutes, then store in the fridge. From time to time shake the bottle.
Now you can lick the bowl!

The liquor is ready to consume in 2-3 days.

To make plain egg liqueur, repeat all steps, just skip the chocolate.

Or you can make both, just double all ingredients, whip eggs with sugar, divide amount, then add milk to one and milk with chocolate to the other part. Continue both parts separate, add alcohol. Pour in bottles.

There is a concern that Salmonella, introduced by the raw eggs, may survive and proliferate in these homemade liqueurs. Pooled cultures of salmonellae were introduced into the liqueurs, which were then stored at 36F and were shown to survive for longer than 4 days.
Subsequently, salmonellae survival was prevented by blending the eggs and the alcohol mixture then storing this mixture at room temperature (70°F) for a minimum of 15 min. Recommendations are suggested to ensure production of a safe product.


Let me know if you want recipes of other home made liqueurs.
For me making my own homemade liqueurs from affordable vodka is a great way to get a wonderful flavor that’s cheaper than spending $30 a bottle for something that’s really easy to make yourself. An added benefit of making your own home brews and liqueurs is the fact that you know exactly what’s in it.

It is done pretty similar, you just use Irish whiskey, and heavy duty milk/cream. No eggs.
Here you go:

Ingredients

1 (750 milliliter) bottle Irish whiskey
8 3/4 ounces milk chocolate
2 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
2 (12 fluid ounce) cans evaporated milk
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon instant coffee granules

Directions

Pour a small amount of whiskey into a large bowl.
In the top of a double boiler, melt chocolate, stirring constantly until smooth. Mix the melted chocolate with the whiskey in the bowl.
Gradually stir in the sweetened condensed milk and the evaporated milk.
Stir in the cream, instant coffee granules, and the remaining whiskey.

Pour mixture into 3 (750 ml) bottles, seal and store in refrigerator.
Best if kept at least 1 month before using.
To serve: shake bottle well, serve in small glasses over crushed ice.

^^^ Oh wait... I think I have one made with eggs, and not so heavy duty

You need:

1 cup whiskey
3 egg yolks
1 cup coffee creamer (liquid type, such as half and half)
1 (14 ounce) can Condensed Milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons Chocolate Syrup
1 teaspoon instant coffee

Blend egg yolks with sugar, then add other ingredients, one by one, blending after each addition. Blend well. At the end add whiskey. Blend again.
Pour into your desired clear glass bottles. Leave out in a room temperature for 30 min (remember? salmonella )
Store in the fridge.
Shake.
It gets better when is 3-5 days old.

Actually, I know how to make lots of different liqueurs. Some nutty, some fruity, some kinda crazy like Liqueur from young shoots of pine trees, Amber Liqueur, Amaretto Liqueur, Honey Liqueur, Chili Vodka, Gin and more....
I love homemade liqueurs! And so my family & friends
