Quantcast
Get Buzzed for National Liquer Day!
Oh the sweet taste of alcohol

Despite common belief, a bottle of liquor and liquer are not one in the same. Liqueurs are actually sweetened spirits with various flavors, oils, and extracts. Sugar is often added to them, depending on desired result and flavor. There are a bunch of distinct classes of liqueurs,like absinthe, amaretto,  curacao, Irish cream, and triple sec. Take a look at some of our favorite liquer cocktail creations just in time to celebrate!
