Your Instructor Sarah:
Hi! I have been making and teaching liqueur-making for 20+ years. I’ve made liqueurs professionally for restaurants and have won multiple ribbons for them at the Alameda County Fair. I’m a former organic farmer & a former sommelier. Currently I have a small urban garden and raise backyard chickens.

If you are new to my classes, please take a moment to read this article that came out about me recently:

Class Description
Liqueurs are another great way to preserve your backyard or favorite farmers market fruit, and to really add your signature to a cocktail. They also make great gifts, and are an excellent excuse to use those beautiful glass decanters and liqueur glasses you own (or purchase them at thrift and gift shops)!

What liqueur flavors does March have in store for us? The perennial favorite Limoncello, along with early season strawberries & blueberries, as well as hibiscus!

You’ll learn 3 different techniques, and make 3 differently delicious liqueurs! We’ll also discuss aftercare for your liqueurs & other simple equipment you’ll need later on.

Materials kit to assemble prior to the class and have with you during the class:
You’ll spend between $15-25 for the materials, depending on what you might already have, and how much you are making.

For One bottle of finished liqueur, here is what you need

Ingredients:
1 – 750ml bottle of 80 Proof alcohol – mid-priced, not super expensive or cheap (suggestions to pair with the fruits below)

RIPE Fruit of your choice (either rinsed or washed) – choose either:
8 Meyer (or regular) Lemons – I suggest organic/non sprayed (use vodka)
2 pints (4cups) Strawberries or Blueberries (or a combination!) – I suggest organic/non sprayed (use gin)
1/2 cup Dried Hibiscus Flowers – (use vodka, silver rum, blanco tequila or gin)

12oz Simple Syrup (make your own in advance of the class!) It’s super easy, just warm 1cup water and 1cup white granulated sugar together on the stove, stirring every so often until it becomes clear. No need to even boil. Make sure to let come to room temperature before using in our class.

Note: If making the Hibiscus Liqueur, you’ll be combining the hibiscus flowers with water & sugar when making the syrup. Follow the same procedure, but leave the flowers in while the syrup cools, steeping at least 30 minutes. Strain them out, and keep separate.

Tools:
1/2 Gallon swing top/wide-mouth glass jar, washed for each finished liqueur (ACE Hardware & Michael’s usually carry the Ball 1/2 gallon canning jars)
Muddler or wooden spoon
Cutting board
Small paring knife
Vegetable Peeler (I recommend the OXO brand)
Hand juicer
Saran/cling wrap
3×5 card & pen
Apron
Your questions!

We’ll also discuss ‘aftercare’ for your liqueurs & other simple equipment you’ll need later on, as well as all the great drinks (and more) you can make with your finished liqueurs!
