Today is National Liqueur Day. You’re probably thinking duh, I know what liquor is, vodka, rum, gin and other spirits right? Ummm no, I’m celebrating LIQUEUR, there is a difference. Liqueur is a alcoholic beverage made from a distilled spirit which has been flavored with additional yum-tastic goodness like, cream, fruit, spices, nuts, and other things that add distinct flavor, It’s bottled with some additional sweeteners/sugar and sold worldwide.
Liqueurs are also identified by distinctive colors and also know to the mass populations as cordials or schnapps. Are you with me? Good. These liqueurs take me back to my early clubbing, going to The Showcase (all my Hampton U peeps standup) and ordering Amaretto sours and Midori sours, made with nut / fruit flavor liqueurs. You’re probably thinking, I don’t have any liqueur at home Caz. Well, you just might. Do you have Triple Sec (orange flavor liqueur)? If so make a Cazmo with a lil vodka and cranberry juice. Boom and now you’re part of the celebration.
Here are a few of my FAV liqueurs that’s I’m celebrating with today. Don’t judge me or my spelling.

1oz Scotch (my vote Johnnie Walker Black)
