Grapefruit and lemon add a little bit of tart to balance out the could-be-too-flowery flavor of steeped elderflower blossoms, but whether you make infused simple syrup or your own liqueur, the flavor is bright, sweet summer all the way.
Here's how to make limoncello, along with two cocktails that incorporate the liqueur. The process takes at least three months, but the end result is completely worth it. Sweet, potent lemon liqueur that captures the bright, citrus notes.
Plain or spiced, Black Walnut Nocino (Liqueur de Noix in French) is more bittersweet & tannic than the standard walnut version. It’s kinda like a punch by a nice old Frenchman – sweet & appealingly foreign at first, then wham! Right in the kisser.
Ever had Velvet Falernum? NO?! Its wonderful blend of spices makes incredible cocktails. Buying Falernum can be hard to find, and taste artificial and bland. Use vinegar and make a non-alcoholic shrub that will take your cocktails to the next level!
Simple, sweet and refreshing! Extend the farmer's market treasures, home grown harvests or CSA deliveries by preserving them as a Sparkling Rhubarb Shrub (aka drinking vinegar). Pairs perfectly with good tequila, fresh mint and soda.
