National Liqueur Day

Today is National Liqueur Day.  A liqueur is a distilled spirit that has been flavored with one of a variety of items such as fruit, cream, spices, herbs and so forth then sweetened with sugar or other sweeteners.  Liqueur’s are typically sweet and not aged although their may be a resting time to allow the flavors to marry.  

In the United States, where we call spirits, liquor, there are sometimes confusion between the two items.  The big distinction between the two are the sweetness and the fact that liqueur’s typically have a lower alcohol content.

Liqueur’s are descendants of herbal medicines that were made as early as the 13th century and were often prepared by Monks.  Today liqueur’s are made world-wide and are served in many ways.  They are often served during the dessert course and many are used in cooking.  Below is a list of liqueur’s as well as a list of alcoholic beverages that are made with them.  See if you can match them up.  Shout out to your friends if you need some help.  We will post answers within 24 hours on Facebook.  Let us know how well you did!
