home made scotch liquer?
Has anyone tried to make one before? If so I'd love to hear about what ingredients worked and what didn't. Scotch and honey are the two obvious biggies. Wikipedia suggests drambuie contains saffron, anise, nutmeg, and herbs. People on the web suggest rosemary, fennel, angelica root, and citrus zest. Glayva is reported to include clove and almonds but I've never seen it in stores.
So whats do you guys think? I"m thinking of taking about 3 cups of a blended scotch, adding a dash of anise, cloves, and maybe a little nutmeg and letting it infuse for a few weeks, straining, and then stirring in a cup of honey. I'd like the finished product to be somewhat less cloying than drambuie.
I've made home made drambuie and it came out great. Unfortunately, the website with the recipes is no longer. This is close to what I think I used:
Toughest part is finding angelica root, but health food stores will special order it if they don't have it in stock.
