Beyond Grapes by Yacov Morad

Good morning, everyone! Today I'm a stop on the TLC blog tour for Yacov Morad's Beyond Grapes: Simple Recipes for Delicious Homemade Liqueurs

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a big drinker. But I do love fruity drinks that taste deceptively unlike alcohol. And I blame that and the part in Anne of Green Gables where they drink the cherry cordial for my love of fancy liqueurs!

In Beyond Grapes, Yacov Morad shares a bevy of homemade liqueur recipes perfect for any palate. And, as the subtitle promises, they're easy! Like really easy!

Morad is the founder of Morad Winery in Israel where he makes wine (and liqueurs) out of everything except grapes. Passion fruit, dates, coconut...but no grapes. And he's sharing his secrets here! 

There are herbal liqueurs, fruity liqueurs, chocolate liqueurs...pretty much anything you can think of. There's even a section of homemade infused vodkas and moonshine! (And there's a grape liqueur recipe too.)

Not unlike homebrewing, there's something so satisfying about making a liqueur. Not only do you get the play to your own tastes and preferences, but they also make really unique gifts! And if you make one of the fruit or veggie ones, you get the added bonus of being able to eat the alcohol infused goodies.

Normally by the time I review a cookbook I've tried some of the recipes. There is, however, a time factor involved in making liqueurs, so I'll have to report back on how mine turn out! But I'm pretty sure once our local food swap gets up and going again, I'll be sharing some of these with my fellow foodies!
