Ginger/Spice Liquer Recipe needed!

oracle347 Oct 16, 2006 02:33 AM

I'm in need of a Gingery-Spicy-christmasy Liquer Recipe. I have made it a habit to give my friends homemade foodstuffs for Christmas- Last year was Thai Styled Sweet Chili Sauce. My experiement earlier this year with a homemade Strawberry Liquer was so successful that I thought of the Ginger would be a fantastic idea for Christmas. However, all the recipes I've came across seem too heavy on the Ginger side and not enough on the spice side - I'm kinda looking to make Liquid Gingerbread...

So, Any ideas?

    I'll bet you could adapt TalkOfTomatoes' recipe for gingersnap-infused simple syrup into something for infused vodka / schnapps. The ingredients would be lovely in a liqueur.

    Here's the thread - you'll notice my post raving about the wonderful spice flavors:

      This year we're blending homemade schnapps (http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/...) for Christmas presents. We just put our ginger on so the recipe isn't done yet, but as it stands we are blending:

      black pepper
      orange zest

      The spice of the cloves and pepper really hits the back of your throat - great for winter colds!
