As you already know, I love to make my own liqueur. I really like to experiment with different flavours and fruit based liqueurs are the ones I like the most. I must confess that I don’t drink much (I know… I am a weird kind of Italian who doesn’t really appreciate a good glass of Barolo!), but I have a soft spot for sweet liqueurs. This Mango Liqueur came about more as an experiment. A reader (well, a friend really!) asked me to try and make it and I finally got around to do it. The result is so good, that I am happy to report that the experiment was indeed a success and I can now easily share it with all of you! If you like mango, this is the perfect liqueur to make! Cheers!
- Put the mango pieces in a big glass jar and cover them with the alcohol. Close the jar with a tight lid and keep it in a dark place for 30 days.
- After the 30 days, make a syrup by mixing the water and sugar and heating until dissolved. Let the syrup cool down completely.
- Filter the mango alcohol and mix the alcohol with the cold sugar syrup. Pour into a jar and let it rest in a dark place for another 2 to 3 weeks.
- Filter it again and bottle it up.
- Serve very cold.
