Use this whenever Godiva Chocolate Liqueur or Creme de Cacao is called for in a recipe. Personally, I would rinse the vanilla bean & add it to the jar of strained liqueur.

Recipe #191380

From Classic Liqueurs, by Cheryl Long and Heather Kibbey: Grand Orange-Cognac Liqueur. I modified it to make it a little more chef friendly.

Recipe #191348

This recipe contains no eggs which makes it safe for the elderly, this is very good!

Recipe #190519

Italian Cherry Liqueur. Perfect after dinner cordial, to be enjoyed with friends or to be given as a gift. You can use a bottle with a tight fitting cork or screw top. Wax seals add a nice finished touch. A tablespoon added to pie crust has phenomenal results. Very easy recipe... the hardest part is waiting 6 months for the maceration. Be sure to shake it up when you check on its progress.

Recipe #173249

This is a great Cherry Brandy recipe from Spain. All you need is 2 One Quart jars or two pretty bottles that will hold a quart each and about 6 months. The cherries are the most delicious part of this recipe -- be sure to eat them. They are great with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. The recipe was given to me by my friend from Jerez (Spain). That Amaretto is optional, but highly recommended.

Recipe #173245

If you love Chambord as I do but suffer sticker shock when buying it, here's a good substitute. It doesn't taste exactly the same when drinking it straight up, but when mixed in cocktails you won't be able to tell the difference. I use one of those fancy Chambord bottles to store it in. Cook time is the LONG mellowing time. ( 3 months so plan ahead)

Recipe #172114

Limoncello, Sicily's signature liqueur, is easy to make at home. Perfect for those hot summer days... a cool explosion of the senses. This is the best Limoncello recipe I have come across, I think the secret that makes this one stand apart is the addition of the zest from one lime. Please use organic lemons and limes for this recipe. If they are not organic soak them in water for 1/2 an hour or so before zesting. Also it has been pointed out that it is best to use under-ripe fruit. Once made... there are so many uses; spiking lemonade, flavoring cocktails and splashing onto ice cream, poundcake or fresh fruit. You can substitute the peel of 15 limes for the lemon peel. Total time: 30 minutes, plus at least 4 weeks infusing time

Recipe #167289

I read every Irish cream liqueur recipe on Zaar & elsewhere over the holidays, but none seemed quite the same as a clipping in my memory, misplaced somewhere in a stack of thousands. Eureka...it's now found, and I'm posting it “Quick Like a Bunny” before it eludes me again. I don't think it's any less expensive than buying the real thing, but you'll find it simple, fresh & refreshing...no eggs in sight. Clipped from Bon Appetit's request column many years ago as a house specialty from the restaurant at Atlanta’s World Trade Center. Enjoy it on St. Paddy’s Day, and when the holidays roll 'round again, you can bottle it and delight your friends.

Recipe #158205

I always associate autumn with cranberries. Here is an elegant liqueur that's really easy to make (and a treat to receive as a Christmas or hostess gift). If giving as a gift, be sure to allow enough time (in days) for the fruit to fully infuse the liquor. Cooking time is actually infusion time. UPDATE: After the liqueur is made, try using it to make Rita L's cocktail A Jolly Christmas Special Cosmo or Red Hot Lovers Cosmo (recipe #109007), or if you give the liqueur as a gift, you might want to give the recipient a copy of Rita's recipe to go with it!)

Recipe #103136

Doesn't exactly taste like creamsicles, but similar--the vanilla does soften the bite of the orange somewhat in that direction. To drink in liqueur glasses or pour over ice cream, angelfood cake, etc. Makes a delightful gift. Be sure to use vanilla extract, not imitation vanilla flavoring; the same goes for the orange extract. Times listed do not include 2 weeks for the liqueur to sit and infuse.

Recipe #94154

Ridiculously easy to make, tastes wonderful and makes an impressive gift for any non-teetotaler friends. Superfine sugar works the best. Preparation time does not include 10-12 days for fruit to infuse liqueur.

Recipe #91061

Wonderful for those long summer evenings, when it's too hot to go to bed...it will keep the conversation going forever (or at least until the bottle is empty...!)Keep this in the freezer (it won't freeze because of the alcohol in it, but it will become even creamier and more refreshing) and take it out about ten minutes before serving (Prep time includes overnight soaking)

Recipe #87634

this is a recipe from Nestle.An impressive homemade liqueur. Serve as a liqueur with coffee, or spoon over ice cream. Makes a good hostess gift.

This is the cat's Meow! I know you are saying there are already a lot of recipes on this site for the same thing, I researched them before posting mine and this one is just a little different so here it is. Everyone I have ever served this to absolutely goes beserk over the taste and says it's as good as the real thing. It's so much cheaper too! I found this on an internet site, but can't remember which one, it was to long and to many fifths ago!! You can easily double the recipe.

Recipe #74594

This is a recipe I came up with since I enjoy white russians soo much, and also I like Kahlua in my coffee too. Let me know what you think if it is too strong, weak or is missing something..THANKS!!

Recipe #18458

Much cheaper than buying the real thing, and tastes just like it.

Recipe #178484

Liqueur de Poire is a French pear liqueur that is easy to make and makes a wonderful gift. The hardest part is waiting three months for the maceration process. Be sure to shake the jar periodically when you check on its progress.

Recipe #173253

Do I really have to explain this? Why pay all that when you can have your own made the way you like it? This is from Veggie Life originally. The editor suggest peaches, plums, cherries, strawberries, tomatoes, cilantro, celery, or a combination.

Recipe #172168

I just finished a batch of this, and found it good enough to post here for my very first time. From "Cooking Light" Magazine: "Fresh lemon juice and lemon rind add bright tang and beautiful hue to this liqueur. Begin a batch 3 weeks before you plan to serve it. Pour over ice with 2 parts sparkling water for a cool, delicious lemon spritzer. To serve straight up, coat the rim of a chilled martini glass in lemon juice, then dip in sugar. Garnish with a lemon slice.

Recipe #165809

If you're watching your waistline then don't try this recipe, well once a year is okay LOL! This is a drink from heaven!.... Because of the raw eggs, I advise not to serve this to the elderly due to Salmonella. This recipe will make 1 litre, but I really suggest to double the amount.
