    Recipe ingredients and directions:

    Fruit Liqueur

    (Tested on raspberries, blackberries and a mix of both).

    Start with fresh fruit. Place cleaned fruit into a jar.

    Add very strong alcohol just so it barely covers all of the fruit.

    -I used double distilled vodka (alcohol content probably about 55-65%).

    -Beware though- Apparently operating a still is VERY illegal ;-)

    Let the covered jar sit for about a week and a half (it's covered so

    the alcohol doesn't evaporate). Note that no fermentation takes place

    here- all that happens is that the fruit soaks up the alcohol, and

    releases some of its juices. Depending on the type of fruit the level

    of fluid may decrease. Once you've decided that the fruit has soaked

    in much of the alcohol gently pour off the fluid so as not to blemish

    the fruit (try one now for a taste experience :-). Call this (very

    strong) fluid rack #1.

    During the following steps you probably should avoid blemishing the

    fruit if at all possible.

    Replace the fruit in the jar, but layer it with sugar. How much sugar

    is a bit difficult to say here. I usually tried to do my best to cover

    almost all of the fruit with _some_ sugar. Cover the jar again. What

    happens now is that the sugar makes the fruit give off its alcohol and

    shrivel slightly. In a couple of days the level of juice in the jar

    should reach almost the top of the fruit. This means it is time to pour

    it off again, call this rack #2.

    Now we repeat the layering with sugar step (getting rack#3, rack#4,

    etc) until only a very small amount of juice is released. I have been

    told that with cherries this can be kept up until only a tiny little

    bit of cherry skin is surrounding the pit. Each rack is sweeter and

    sweeter.

    With rasp[black]berries I got to rack #4 and then got bored waiting for

    really small amounts of juice. So I took the berries, threw them into a

    cloth and twisted the hell out them to release the vestiges of alcohol

    and juice. This was rack#5. The left over pulp can be used with

    ice-cream. Note that this step is entirely optional, four racks were

    plenty enough (but why waste alcohol :-).

    Now comes the fun part.

    Invite several friends (I used 5) and mix the different racks in

    various proportions and get some feedback on how they taste (too sweet,

    too alcoholic, too dry, etc). Don't use too many friends or else you

    won't have any left after the tasting. Now you should know what

    proportions to mix the final product in. Disposing of juice _not_ used

    in the final mix is left as an exercise to the reader (I had some sweet

    stuff left over and use it on ice cream).

    Cherry Liqueur

    Fill a Jar with cherries.

    Add alcohol to cover all the cherries.

    Let sit for a week or so, by this time the cherries should have swelled and

    there should be less liquid in the jar.

    Pour off the liquid.

    a)Layer the cherries with sugar and let sit another week.

    b)Pour off resulting fluid.

    c)Repeat steps a) and b) until the cherries are so small that they're

    just basically the pit covered with a very thin skin.

    Now mix all the batches that you poured off to suit your taste. The

    first is most bitter, the last is the sweetest.

    Place lemon slices in glass mugs and ladle the concoction into

    the mixture to room temperature, then add:

    5 tbsp vanilla extract

    GRAND ORANGE-COGNAC LIQUEUR

    Grand Marnier is a classic orange liqueur to be savored. While ordinary brandy

    can be used, we recommend a good cognac or French brandy for best flavor. Ready

    in 5 to 6 months. Makes about 1 pint.

    1/3 cup orange zest*

    1/2 cup granulated sugar

    2 cups cognac or French brandy

    1/2 tsp glycerine

    Place zest and sugar in a small bowl. Mash and mix together with the back of a

    wooden spoon or a pestle. Continue mashing until sugar is absorbed into the

    orange zest and is no longer distinct. Place into aging container. Add cognac.

    Stir, cap and let age in a cool dark place 2 to 3 months, shaking monthly.

    After initial aging, pour through fine mesh strainer placed over medium bowl.

    Rinse out aging container. Pour glycerine into aging container and place cloth

    bag inside strainer. Pour liqueur through cloth bagStir with a wooden spoon

    to combine. Cap and age 3 more months before serving.

    *Note: Authentic Grand Marnier uses bitter Haitian oranges to produce its

    classic taste. You may use any type of orange peel you wish; however, a bitter

    type, such as Seville, is preferred for authenticity.

    KAHLUA

    Bring 3 cups of water, 3 cups of sugar and 1/4 cup of instant coffee

    to a boil, then simmer for 1 1/2 hours.

    Cool to room temperature and add 1 fifth of white rum and 1/2 of a

    fifth of Triple Sec.

    Homemade Kahlua

    1 qt. water

    2 1/2 cups sugar

    3 tablespoons instant coffee

    1 tablespoon vanilla

    2 1/2 cups vodka

    Bring water, sugar and coffee to a boil in a saucepan. Simmer VERY

    slowly for 3 hours. Mixture will be very dark and syrupy. Cool. Add

    vanilla and vodka. Makes 7 cups.

    Coffee-Vodka

    2 cups water

    2 cups white sugar

    1/2 cup dry instant coffee

    1/2 chopped vanilla bean (I use vanilla extract about 1 to 2 t.)

    1 1/2 cups vodka

    caramel coloring (optional)

    Boil water and sugar until dissolved. Turn off heat. Slowly add dry

    instant coffee and continue stirring. Add a chopped vanilla bean to the

    vodka, then combine the cooled sugar syrup and coffee solution with the

    vodka. Cover tightly and shake vigorously each day for 3 weeks. Strain

    and filter. Yield: about 4 cups

    I do substitute vanilla extract for the vanilla bean because I always have

    the extract on hand. I also don't usually wait three weeks to drink it.

    If you use the extract you only have to wait a short while to try it.

    (Like about 5 minutes :-).

    Its also best to let the sugar mixture cool completely so the vodka won't

    evaporate when its added. I've never added the caramel coloring. You

    really don't need it.

    If you like a smoother feel to the liqueur you can add about 1 teaspoon of

    glycerine to the finished product.
