Cocktails and Recipes
Many people like to drink a liqueur on its own at room temperature after a meal, however, you might like to try them over ice, as a long drink with soda/tonic/ lemonade or in the making your favourite cocktail.
Top up the Strawberry or Elderflower with Prosecco – delightful!
Drizzled over ice-cream or cheesecake is also delicious.
