READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Redsie

I have made this for Christmas and also for Summer parties - it is delicious! It keeps in the fridge for up to a year (as I am writing this, I am having a sip of my liqueur I prepared for Easter - and it is still as good (if not better)!! I got this recipe from a Cooking light magazine.

I gave this a try, since it looked and sounded so yummy. It lived up to it's reputation! I thoroughly enjoyed sharing it at a birthday celebration with friends. Everyone who tried it thought it was delicious! I loved it with 1/2 gingerale and 1/2 club soda, but it was wonderful on it's own as well. Thanks for posting, I'll be making this one again and again!
