    All about liqueur & schnapps

    If there were no liqueurs or schnapps, there would be no Kir Royale or Cosmopolitan — the classic cocktails that have been loved by people all over the world for years. Cordials and schnapps might seem to fall behind spirits in the line of alcoholic pleasures, but without them, we would miss out on so many delicious cocktails.

    What is liqueur?

    Liqueur isn't the same as liquor. The former is a sweet alcoholic drink that's made from spices, herbs, nuts, flowers and spirits. With their sweet flavor, cordials and schnapps are bold enough to create delicious mixers. Liquors, on the other hand, are neutral spirits.

    Types of liqueurs and schnapps

    There are numerous liqueurs made throughout the world. Some of the most exquisite of them are made with fruit. There are also liqueurs derived from berries and those that include spices. Vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon and aniseed are among the most common spices that add their own flavors to unique blends. The next ingredients in line are herbs and nuts, such as hazelnut, that add distinctiveness to schnapps and cordials. Schnapps contain a mix of neutral spirits and varied flavors and are bottled with sugar to create a syrupy liquid.

    How to enjoy liqueur and schnapps

    Add fruity or herbal liqueur and schnapps to cakes and coffees or pour them over ice creams to make them taste better and boozier. And, of course, the best way to enjoy schnapps is after a heavy meal. In Germany, it's customary to take a warm shot of schnapps after eating to help with digestion.

    Your liquor cabinet real estate is precious space and deserves only the most exquisite flavors and textures. Whether your love lies with martinis or other classic cocktails made with gin, vermouth or bourbon, you need some classic liqueurs, cordials and schnapps to appease your taste buds.
