Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
An easy and beautiful liqueur you can make at home and the holiday gift I make for friends that is most anticipated!
Chamomile and Pear make a delicate infused vodka
Every year I grow lemongrass, but Minnesota winters are to cold for the perennial grass to survive the hard frosts. This year I had a better idea. I infused the stalks in vodka.
We use this very spicy vodka to turn up the heat on cocktails such as lemon drops, Bee's Knees, and a fresh carrot and beet juice cocktail!!!
In preparation for a Bloody Mary cocktail party I decided to infuse some vodkas. I chose two recipes, a special Bloody Mary Infusion (think garlic) and Bacon Habanero (think spicy).
Homemade DIY Chocolate Liqueur! So easy and delicious!
Grapefruit makes amazing liqueur. This grapefruit honey liqueur is sweet, tart and bitter all rolled into one, making it perfect cocktail material. I’ve also included a variation on the Salty Dog cocktail recipe to turn up the grapefruit to 11!
Dehydrated Asian pears and fresh ginger make a delightful infused vodka. Make it now to celebrate Christmas or New Years.
Volunteer coriander is taking over my garden! This year I let it all go, then harvested the tiny flowers to make Coriander Flower Liqueur.
Good citrus only comes once a year, so I made Navel Orange Liqueur, also known as Triple Sec, with fresh orange juice and peel to preserve the flavor for summer cocktail season.
