Liqueurs and Cordials
Liqueurs/ Cordials, are a sweet distilled spirit with sugar contents starting at 2.5 percent, with the sweetest (ie. crèmes) going far beyond that. These spirits often begin with a base liquor, which could be anything from a neutral grain alcohol to a brandy, whiskey, or rum. Sugar is added to the base along with herbs, fruits or spices depending on the desired result and flavor.
