I was thinking of making a coffee liqueur with the Espresso Natalia gave me and I google searched to see how it is made.  I have made liqueurs in the past so I knew the procedure but still I wanted to see if there was something more to do.  I found this recipe and since I had a lot of brandies in my bar, I liked the idea of making it with brandy.  I  also had dark rum so I used some of that as well.

The same day I was planning to make the liqueur, I was already preparing another cake recipe in which I was using some of the cherries I had made and then the idea popped into my mind…

The recipe is included in my cookbook Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!

I have already thought of a few ideas of using it, if it lasts until then, because we love it.

  1. I did not know it was so easy to make a liqueur! Plus I thought the liqueur had to sit for weeks before it could be consumed!
