Format: Paperback
So, I call my hobby, "What Can I soak in Vodka?" ... I've tried many, many of the recipes in the book & they have all turned out very, very well. It has simple recipes with clear instructions (no super expensive ingredients!). It's a great book to learn how to make liqueurs & will give those of you who are more experiences some new ideas -- AND food recipes for your creations! The basic idea is to mix the ingredients and let them soak in vodka, etc. for a period of time. The beauty is, the longer you let it sit, the better it is! If you get busy, no worries!! Now that I know what I am doing, I have started experimenting with local, Alaskan wild berries & flowers (Fireweed is the BEST!). It's a great after dinner drink in January!! :)

When I first got this book I had never made liqueurs, but the directions in this book were so easy to follow that even my first batch turned out great. Three years later I'm famous among my friends and family for making great liqueurs! Their versions of kalua, tia maria, frangelica and vanilla are some of my favorites.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an all-round, terrific publication. It is well written, with easy-to-understand instructions and tips. The authors have created outstanding recipes using readily available ingredients with suggestions for numerous variations. An excellent choice for first-time enthusiasts. Following the sections on to liqueur and brandy making, the authors have devoted a third portion of the publication to cooking with your creations. This modest little book is definitely well worth the price!

Format: Paperback
This is my go-to book. I've loaned it out, lost it and bought it more than once. If you've never made liqueurs, this is the book for you. The authors include many noteworthy tips and set you up for sure success. I've tried over 10 recipes in the book and they've all been winners. And when you show up at a party with home-made liqueurs, the look on people's faces is just priceless!

Format: Paperback
This book gives a great overview on the basics of making cordials and liqueurs at home. The step by step intructions to set up and explanation of terms used in other texts and this one make it easy to start from nothing. I have only been working with liqueurs about 3 years and have won both contests I have entered using batches from recipes in this book. For SCA, members this is not a great research book, but it tells you how to make fantastic tasting stuff!

This book introduced me to the most unique hobby ever. The quality far exceeds what can be bought in the stores and it is very impressive to serve to guests. I've gotten requests for the cranberry liqueur for over 15 years!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Linda on December 30, 2009
Format: Paperback
I bought this book last summer and made three of the recipes: blueberry liqueur, plum liqueur and coffee liqueur (like Kahlua). All three turned out fantastic. You have to keep in mind that most of the liqueurs take several months before they are done. We tested them shortly after making them and are not very smooth (as the books warns), but with a little age, they are so yummy. I only made one batch of each, but after so many people kept tasting them and after giving away little bottles for the holidays, we ran out. Of the ones I made, some folks were partial the blueberry and some the plum. They all said the coffee was good (tasted like Kahlua), but found the fruit ones to be more unusual. I liked it so much, I gave a copy of the book to my sister-in-law for Christmas.
