    What a great topic! My partner and I were just creating a "Liqueurs to Make" cookbook the other night.

    Here's one that we made last year and simply adore: Spiced Rum

    Maybe someone else can do a better job of finding recipes to make with it. We just drink it as hot buttered rum or with juice, but I bet it would be fabulous in RitaL's Creamy Eggnog Punch with Spiced Rum.

    It really depends on your corking. Be sure you have a TIGHT seal. Oxygen is the enemy.

    General rule of thumb: if the bottle is never opened, expect three years out of it. If it's opened once, or seldomly, expect a year or so. If it's opened lots, you will probably finish it off before it matters. Everytime you open the bottle fresh oxygen will hit the liqueur, so it may last a couple months with repeated openings, so you may as well drink it while you can.

    Commercial liqueurs last considerably longer becuase they include commercial preservatives and antioxidants.

    Cream liqueurs and egg liqueurs are a different animal. Despite alcohol's great disinfectant properties, every liqueur book cautions people against trying to keep cream or egg liqueurs for more than a few weeks to a month, and then only in the refrigerator.

    Again, commercial liqueurs last considerably longer. Eierlikor and Bailey's Irish Cream both have much longer shelf life than four weeks, but they know what they're doing and are again using commercial ingredients.

    Okay, one more silly question icon_redface.gif .....can I just recycle an old glass liquor bottle or do I need to purchase special bottles, corks, etc. I would like to try one of the recipes but I don't want to poison someone icon_eek.gif .

    The Limoncello. I was thinking about making it and the recipe I was looking at required 80 days (I think). I thought I wouldn't be able to do it for Christmas gifts but this one is only 3 weeks. Most of our family and friends are vodka drinkers.

    I love this thread NC~!!!!!! You always have the best ideas...they usually involve liquor and I can appreciate that! I think I'm going to make some of these for the holidays...

    Question...for a recipe that calls for vodka as a base, do I need to use premium vodka, or will middle of the road or rotgut work since they are being infused...
