Here I am, back with another recipe for home-made liqueur! Once you understand the procedure, you can make basically any flavour liqueur you like. This one is made with fresh passion fruit and it is delicious and even though it requires 45 days of “resting time”, the recipe itself is very easy. Thi liqueur is quite strong, so drink it in moderation or mix it with other liqueurs and juices to make tropical cocktails. I love the colour, so bright and cheerful… it looks almost like sunshine in your glass, doesn’t it? Enjoy! Cheers!
