  1. Moram komentirati kako si odlično uhvatila igru sjena i svijetla na fotkama. Sjene uglavnom pokvare fotku ali na ovim tvojim su tako dobro iskorištene, totalno zamišljam osunčani vrt i hladovinu kakve voćke dok ih gledam.Sigurna sam da je i liker fin! ;)

  2. @Andrea – Hvala! :) Liker je tatin recept, i on ga najcesce pravi od 5 limuna. Prilicno je jak ako se pije sam, ja sam ga pravila jer je sastojak mnogih recepata koje bih da pravim, a nikad ga nemam kuci. U sledecem postu cu objaviti recept za kremasti limuncino iz S&P koji je stvarno fantastican :)

  3. I sure like to try this out! Thank you for sharing such interesting recipe and lovely photos too. I have to look for the high percentage alcohol content though :-)

  4. Is vodka a good enough grain alcohol? I'm not sure what this kind of alcohol is or where to find it. I tried doing search online but maybe I will just have to see if others have a recipe like yours. It looks wonderful by the way!

  5. the liqueur looks great. i'm not a big fan of alcoholic drinks, but i always like to have a sip of orange or cherry liqueur :)

  6. @mamma3monkeys – Vodka usually has 40% of alcohol. Try soaking orange peel in vodka, then after 6 days strain and put sugar in it. I am not sure how long will it take sugar to melt, but I hope it will work fine.

  7. Ja sam trenutno u "procesu proizvodnje" likera od naranče: kora se moči u alkoholu, a za par dana prelazim na idući korak. Moj recept je nešto drugačiji, ali spremam i ovaj tvoj pa ću ga probati:)

  8. Nothing beats making your own flavored liquors. Similar can be done with strawberries, raspberries, kumquats, lemons, limes, and fruit indeed!

  9. If I used vsop brandy instead of neutral spirit, wouldn't this become curacao?
