Liqueur

Humankind has been enjoying liqueur for a long time – like a really, really long time. As in, there is a liqueur on the market today that has been made and marketed since 1084, and there is historical mention of liqueur alongside the other accomplishments of a bevy of medieval monks and alchemists. Not to mention historical traces thereof dating back to 3000 BC!

Suffice it to say, when you enjoy a liqueur-based cocktail today, you are standing (or sipping, if you will) on the shoulders of historical giants. This selection of mixed drinks features everything from Grand Marnier, to Cynar, Averna, Braulio, Frangelico, and Ancho Reyes – amazing liqueurs that add a real dash of lyrical oomph to these cocktails.
