This homemade liqueur recipe is the perfect present to give for Christmas (or anytime): it’s easy, quick and cheap to make with simple ingredients that can be easily found at the supermarket. It’s always pleasantly surprising at just how tasty and simple a homemade liqueur can be. The flavor and infusion duration are affected by the quality of your herbs. Homegrown herbs have richer flavors, leading to quicker and more effective infusion. Most importantly, feel free to replace some of the ingredients with what you have on hand or what you grow. This will make your booze unique and even more special.
Infused liqueurs like this require adequate time for maceration and rest, but they are actually very easy and quick to prepare: even a beginner with little basic cooking knowledge can create them at home. The secret to make this liquor into a fancy but still cheap gift, is to reuse cute bottles saved during the year, like the tomato sauce ones. Or you can you take a look around the markets or in the housewares departments and you will find bottles in all shapes and sizes.
I suggest to buy / reuse bottles with a capacity around 8 oz / 200 ml, to complete with a cute bow and a handwritten label.
