Cherry liqueur – Kirsebærlikør

An old recipe handed down from my grandmother


In my family we have made cherry liqueur for at least four generations. My grandmother, who was a tea-totaller by the way, taught me how to make it and I have taught my daughters. You may find our recipe a little different than others as we spice it and we don’t remove the pits from the cherries – Ted

        Jeg drikker ikke alkohol; den skal jeg lave til julegaver! Så for blandingen en hel masse tid til at sidde og udvikle sig.

          My liqueurs (I make red current, plum and cherry) also end up as Christmas presents. I hardly ever drink anything stronger than beer 😉

          Red current liqueur is made just the same way as cherry liqueur by the way.

            I make cherry, ginger, lemon, raspberry, strawberry, elderflower, elderberry, blackcurrant, chamomile, cinnamon, mint, peach, pear, and apple. 😀 I save some for myself for baking/cooking purposes, bottle the rest and give it away. With the fruit ones, I save the fruits for baking/cooking as well 🙂
