Nothing beats homemade stuff be it cookies,cakes or even liqueur. I must say that this is my first attempt at making a liqueur at home. But now I feel like kicking myself for not trying earlier! :P Anyway, it's better late than never ;)
I have seen quite a number of recipes online but never got around to trying out one. But in a recent conversation I had with an aunt of mine, she mentioned that she makes an after-dinner drink. I never let go of a chance of noting down a tried & tested recipe. So I got the recipe from her made it immediately.

Took a small share of it for a taste-test for my cousins and everybody loved it. I got one or two comments saying it was a li'l sweet. But trust me... I felt it was perfect :)
