Honey Liquor Recipe

All About Cocktails   Homemade Liqueur Recipes



500 gr pure Honey
1/4 L Water
3/8 L Grain alcohol (spirit of wine)

Dissolve honey in hot water. The water should not be hotter than 45 degrees Celsius. Let the mixture cool down, then add spirit of wine.

Exchange spirit of wine with spirits like whisky, brandy or a similar strong liquor, then you'll get a lighter liquor. The strong variant is also called "Baerenfang" (bear catch), because it is said that two or so hundred years ago bears were caught in the forests of Northern Europe by putting out pans of that brew, and when they (the bears, not their hunters) got drunkily asleep they could be caught without danger.
