Re: [SCA_Brew] Liqueurs, Schanpps, and Flavored Vodkas
- I use cheap vodka to make my liqueurs, and so far everyone loves them.
My questions actaully pertained to making modern cocktails, not Period
stuff, but the answers have been enlightening.
- That is most certainly illegal in the united states without a distillers permit. (Doesn't stop me, buuuut). Any distillation that involves alcohol (including reclamation distillation, where you distill off the alcohol you used to extract something from something, thus ending with extract, and the alcohol you originally had) requires a license.

You're right; the liqueur recipes call for various amounts of water to
cut the vodka.
I'm currently net searching recipes for home made fruit brandies,
but they seem to be distilled, which makes them illegal to make.
However, there are plenty of recipes for infusing plain brandy
with various fruits. I'll keep looking. :)
