Make Your Own Cordials are perfect to serve at a holiday party or to give as a hostess gift.
I used small glass bottles from The Container Store with latched closures to preserve the fresh taste of the homemade cordials. The bottles also allow you to instantly identify the contents of the bottle and the quantity remaining.
To make these homemade cordials you would use a 50:50 ratio for the liquors and then add your favorite fruits, spices and candies to flavor the mixture. Once the mixture has been made, let the cordials sit for two weeks so the flavors infuse.
To save yourself two weeks of waiting, mix the cordials in air tight containers and place them into the dishwasher. The heat from the water will infuse the ingredients at rapid speed and will be ready for use the following day.
Here are my favorite make your own cordial recipes that were featured on The Better Show.
Be creative when making your own cordials, use ingredients that compliment each other. Fruits, spices and candies also give the homemade cordials a beautiful look when they are displayed.
