Imagine being able to turn your pantry staples into a flavor enhancer for the next family after dinner treat. The recipes are generally very easy to follow and does not take a whole lot of extra work.

You can use vodka, but sometimes brandy or rum will complement a flavor better. Vodka is the alcohol of choice because it has a neutral flavor. Other liquors can be used, but they contribute flavors of their own.

After you have made single flavor extracts, don’t be shy about blending together such as chocolate coffee bean hazelnut, lavender vanilla or maybe even chocolate peppermint extract. Extracts do not have to be refrigerated and will store indefinitely due to alcohol. Be sure to strain thoroughly.
