As liqueurs are quickly becoming bigger stars of the mixed-drink world, more varieties are popping up. Flavored with fruit, herbs, nuts, spices, flowers or cream, these sugary cocktail counterparts are beginning to take center stage.
Paula's Texas Grapefruit Liquer
Paula's latest release is a 54-proof grapefruit liqueur made from hand-picked Texas Ruby Red grapefruit and pure cane sugar. It is best served when mixed with tequila, sparkling wine, or gins.
Pisco Portón La Caravedo
Pisco Portón's newest release, La Caravedo, is made purely from Quebranta grapes. It takes eight pounds of grapes to produce each bottle and the resulting liqueur offers flavors of stone fruit and melon.
Marlee's Green Tea Whiskey
Combining American Rye Whiskey with Chinese Gunpowder Green Tea and Mexican Blue Agave, Marlee's Green Tea Whiskey is a balanced craft drink that can be enjoyed by itself or mixed.
Corbin Cash Sweet Potato Liqueur
Made from 100 percent sweet potatoes grown on the Corbin estate, this liqueur is distilled and aged in American white-oak casks with brown sugar and a blend of spices and extracts.
Somrus Indian Cream Liqueur
Inspired by a traditional creamy Indian dessert calls Ras Malai, SomruS blends exotic flavors of cardamom, saffron, pistachio, almond and rose. It's great for cocktails, poured over fruit and baked into desserts.
