Hi, I discovered your blog via "the little house" and its request for liqueur recipes.
Really nice, you can definitely count me among your readers.
I love licorice and I really like this recipe, thanks I will definitely try it.
I will also go to look for those of the jam, it really makes me sick a lot. Congratulations again. Marinella

this recipe is really good, definitely worth trying. can I put a link to your blog in mine?

Coco, this is also very worthy of paper copying .. at Easter I will happily give it away to my mother BY FORCING HER to try her hand! I tasted it at Christmas from a friend of mine and it was very strong but sooo good! THANK YOU!

Thanks Vanilla and congratulations for your blog in which I will entertain as soon as possible I have seen very interesting things

dear coco. I don't understand why to boast of having tried and found the right recipe for licorice liqueur, it was copied from []

Ratus42 I thank you for visiting my blog and for the tip, first of all I am a woman and then generally when I copy something I have no problem admitting it in fact if you browse a little in my blog you realize it, the fact is that it really is my recipe was born after various experimentations of recipes, however, I am pleased to have arrived at the same result as someone else. But is that of the site you indicate to me yours?

Ratus42: for mere tuziorism I confirm that I have checked the recipe you are talking about and the doses are not even the same

dear Coco, a friend is sending me powdered licorice, which comes from a factory in Rossano. I have searched Google for some recipes, but none convinces me, as they provide an unorthodox method for extracting licorice with alcohol: that is, melting the licorice while hot and then adding alcohol and sugar. Since I prepare excellent limoncini and nocini, I thought you would use the same method, which in the end is exactly like what you use for licorice. (alcoholic extraction of the licorice and then add the syrup of water and sugar)
Your doses (500 alcohol, 500 gr sugar (= 312 ml in volume) and 750 ml of water give a final alcohol content of 30.4 & # 176.
What gradation does the commercial one have? for sugar, you add 20% sugar. Does it come very sweet? I prefer limoncino a little sweet, so I add 8%.
Last question, what do you think of powdered licorice? I think it goes very well, as alcohol allows an excellent extraction.
But I still have to try it.

@Gaianantonio the recipe that I use involves a double procedure infusion of roots and licorice and then syrup with sugar water and licorice that has been infused and that must melt on the fire, the liqueur that comes out is an almost thick and wonderful black cream and very loaded with the taste of licorice. I use the powder to make truffles, for a sauce to combine with panna cotta etc. but never for the liqueur for which I do not know whether to tell you to try because at that point the method of production of the liqueur would change. If you try, however, let me know a warm greeting

hello cocò, he made the liqueur following your recipe to the letter, the only thing is that it seems too alcoholic. maybe you need more water, what do you say?

@ Anonymous Ros I think it is about tastes, my personal opinion is that the liqueurs must be alcoholic if you add water it loses a little but if you want to try add sugar if not it becomes dull, let me know hello

I only added half a glass of water, cmq whoever tried it told me that it is good. I do not understand alcohol at all. thanks and bye

. is not the case to use Amarelli pure licorice powder? In particular, compared to the licorice in pieces, it dissolves better, with an evident result.

@ Anonymous I also used the powder but the result is better with the flakes the liqueur is creamier and the taste more full-bodied

However, for the various recipes on the use of licorice powder (liqueur, ice cream and much more) gustidellasibaritide, which sells the product on the net, has at least a dozen

I tried it and I liked it a lot, thanks CoCò! Compared to the method I usually use, without roots, this makes the liquor stronger, more alcoholic. It is very good, even if I must admit that not being used to drinking I went on fire at the first sip: D Hello!

@Anoniomo licorice powder is good for many other things such as truffles and various desserts but for liquor the difference is licorice
@barbara luckily that is a little fortino the liquor if not how good it is we would drink it by the liter

Hi, I would like to try your recipe for Christmas gifts, but I would like to know with these doses how much liquor comes out. thank you very much!

@EgniDove hello with the indicated doses a couple of beautiful bottles come out.

& quotfor mere tuziorism & quot. but please. use these expressions in the appropriate places, read in a cooking blog makes me want to browse. Hello.

In a fortnight it will be even better. I just do it occasionally because it is the only one I can drink willingly.
Hi Veggie

But would pure licorice flakes be chopped licorice stick? I only found the one in the parapharmacy :(!

It is already sold in flakes, but if you can shred whole sticks, they are fine anyway as long as it's pure licorice and not those chewy sticks that are sold at fairs.
Hi Veggie

Hi Veggie! We would like to try to produce it. In place of the 5 roots we found those already chopped and we were told that obviously the aroma will be stronger. What quantity in grams do you recommend to use for a good result?
And the amount of that also remains unchanged?
Thanks ^^

I recommend making a rough calculation of the weight of the 5 roots and using half the weight in chopped roots.
The rest I would leave it unchanged.
Hi Veggie

thank you. I've been waiting for months to be able to make this liqueur! licorice flakes: are those bought at the grocery store okay? or should I go to a herbalist's shop. The same goes for the roots and for the latter what is the quantity? That is, how much should the 5 weigh? Thanks, thanks, thanks. hello from francesca

Grocery stores are fine if you're sure it's pure licorice (no sugar, no flavorings, no preservatives, and more).
For sticks, weight is not so important, put 4-5 medium sized sticks. If they are big you can also put 3, if they are those thin sticks you can put 5.

Hi Veggie, I randomly saw a video of this liqueur on Facebook and as it is produced in one day I came up with the idea of ​​doing it for Christmas.
I immediately ran here to see if you have it too, and here I am.
Do not get angry about my question, in your preparation I can not make it for Christmas and then I wanted to ask you if I can put you the link of what I saw and / or modify it as you advise me, or if you have a faster recipe.
It's still. Are there the bottles in the photo on the internet? so they cost less?
Thank you

Well, what's the point of putting the link, if you want to do what you found on the internet do it, but today is December 12th, how can it be a 10-day liquor?
You should give it away saying to drink it in 2 months.
Are you sure you want to do this?
I don't know where those bottles are bought, I have a couple of other liqueurs.
