Editorial Reviews

Review

“Pour a man a liqueur and he’ll drink for a day. Teach him to make his own and he’ll live on DIY limoncello all year.”



"Truly, there’s something here for every possible boozy situation."

From the Back Cover

As simple as...

 

Alcohol + Flavorings + Sweetener

 

Liqueurs put the orange zing in your margarita and the coffee jolt in your mudslide. If your cocktail is fruity, nutty, flowery, or creamy; if it tastes of coffee or caramel, chances are there's a liqueur involved. Liqueurs are delicious to sip straight up, fun to give as gifts, and easy to make with 159 creative flavors, including clone versions of many of your favorite commercial brands. You'll also find recipes for unsweetened infused spirits and a selection of 80 creative cocktails.

I am having lots of fun trying these recipes.

Before this book, I enjoyed making coffee liqueur at Christmas, but always wished I had more similarly easy recipes.

Format: Paperback
This book has a lot of recipes in it. The author not only gives you recipes but takes time in the beginning to go over the basics with you. We get the rundown of what glassware to use, shakers, utensils and he even goes over the simple syrups that you will be using for the recipes. He really broke it all down for you in the beginning before throwing you right into the recipes.

I found a lot of great recipes that I wanted to try but unfortunately wasn’t able to find the ingredients needed. I’m sure you can find them in other areas but with where I live, obtaining items like cacao nibs just isn’t happening unless I order them online. However, a lot of the recipes sounded delicious and I was able to try a few of them with ingredients I was able to find out here. I tried one called Orange Dreamsicle which was a creamy orange vodka and it tasted just like the popsicle. I’d say that one was my favorite.

This is a great book to have on hand if you are interested in creating your own liqueur. Not only is it self gratifying to know that you made it but I think it tastes a lot better compared to the stuff you buy on a shelf that’s been sitting there for who knows how long. It would also be an amazing holiday/housewarming gift to give someone their own custom made liqueur. I’d love to revisit the book again when I’m living in an area with more shopping options available.

I work in the alcohol industry. I do consulting for small distilleries. I use this book regularly to help develop recipes and new flavor profiles. Love it.

Absolutely loved this book! There are so many recipes, I'm not sure where to begin. I loved the pictures, I loved reading the history of the different liquors and I loved the way the book was set up and organized. Each liqueur recipe has suggestions on the bottom of the page for how to use the recipe in different drink mixes, etc. Not only does this book provide great ideas for gift giving, it would also be a great gift to give as a book because of all the pretty pictures and overall style. Highly recommend!

Synopsis: A collection of really simple recipes for making unique liquors and spirits, as well as drinks utilizing them.

My rating: 5 Stars

My opinion: I loved this book!! These recipes were so unique and FRESH. Utilizing fresh fruits, veggies, spices and herbs, the author expertly offered instructions that any novice mixologist could accomplish. This book wouldn't be limited to the novice mixologist though. Consumers pay some big bucks for commercially prepared liqueurs that are present in this book. Liqueurs that can just as easily be prepared at home with a little bit of time and preparation.

Yes, it is another one on my cookbooks to purchase list.

Another absolute winner from Storey Publishing known for their unique line of cookbooks.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By I. Darren on January 13, 2014
Format: Paperback
A simple proposition: make your own liqueurs and other infused spirits at home, whether original creations or versions of popular brands such as Bailey’s and Kahlua.

After the usual introduction and a fairly helpful, interesting overview to the basics behind the subject it is straight to the recipes, split into different types such as fruit liqueurs, floral liqueurs and infused spirits. There are certainly many, many recipes to choose from.

For some reason the design of this book just grated at times on this reviewer. The slightly fake handwriting-artistic font selection, bizarre use of colours and elements of design must take a share of the blame. It proved to be a distraction, something harder to read and possibly sufficiently annoying to have led to this book being put back on the shelf if one was browsing at a bookstore. That would be a shame since if you need this kind of information this is otherwise a great book. Once you get to the meat of the book the recipes are quite easy to follow and in a strange way this could be a good thing to do with a special person in your life - and then drink the results!

Kudos must be given to the author for managing to balance the needs of the total beginner and the more experienced "liqueur cook" in one comprehensive book and certainly this feels to be a well-considered, thought out work. The combination of price, accessibility of information and range of recipes could make this a fairly clear purchase decision, the book is more than capable of standing on its own merits so the bizarre "design choice" is even more of a mystery as there was no need to try and wrap things up with a cutey-folksy design.

This won't clearly be a book for everyone but it does lift the curtain on a fairly fascinating side of "cooking" that you might not have considered before.

This is a good book to use to learn how to make liqueurs. The pictures are wonderful. I will try all the recipes:). I previewed this book and 2 others before I purchased. Based on the clarity of the recipes I picked this one. Can't wait to try more.
