Homemade liqueurs and cordials
When in England recently, I was treated to a bottle of homemade sloe gin. It was divine! I learned that these tasty liqueurs are surprisingly easy to make. So far, I have tried raspberry and blackberry liqueurs and have given them away at dinner parties (at least, the one's I didn't drink). They were a huge hit. This year, I am going to make various types and give them away as Christmas gifts in pretty bottles with custom labels. If you make any, please let me know how it goes!
