Homemade Liqueurs as Christmas Gifts!

We love to give these homemade liqueurs away as Christmas gifts!  I use empty bottles I save during the year such as hot sauce, vinegar, and Worcestershire bottles and decorate them with homemade tags made from recycled Christmas cards and bags. Then I like to top them off with a small homemade ornament!

~Favorite Liqueur Recipes~

Collect & Clean your bottles inside and out removing all labels and glue. A good soak & an SOS pad does the trick!. Hint: To make sure all the odors are gone I pour in a tablespoon of plain vodka and cap, then I swirl around a few times and empty. If the cap is smelly just turn the bottle upside down allow it to sit a few minutes in the cap and then empty.

Make tags or purchase some. I use old cards and bags by cutting with some etched scissors and gluing a label with the name of the liqueur. I make these on regular paper on the computer.Then tie it on with a pretty ribbon.
Add some cookies or small shot glasses and package in a nice basket for an even nicer gift.

Just look at that. How a small tag make a simple bottle so good looking and precious gift. So appreciable.
