Every year for our Christmas party I make something to give each guest as a favor. In the past I have made individual loaves of bread, candy, ornaments, hot cocoa mix, Donna's crockpot candy, etc. This year I decided to make small bottles of Chocolate Raspberry Liquor. I searched high and low for a recipe but couldn't find one so I had to make it up myself. Turned out pretty good, and I had lots of fun sampling it!! I bought 8 oz bottles, made labels for them and put them in cute goodies bags with a ribbon. I think everyone liked them!! Here is the recipe:

CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY LIQUEUR

3 cup vodka
1½ cups sugar syrup (recipe below)
3 tsp. chocolate extract
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups raspberry syrup

Mix all above in glass jar, store for one week before serving. It is excellent sipped over ice, on ice cream or in a Mudslide. Makes about 6 cups.

Sugar syrup

1½ cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups water

Combine all in large saucepan, heat to boiling, stirring often. Lower heat, simmer for five minutes. Pour syrup into glass contained and cool to room temperature before preparing liqueur.

Apple Pie


1 gallon apple cider
1 gallon apple juice
2 cups of sugar
about 6-8 cinnamon sticks
1 bottle of everclear (liter size)
Bring all ingredients EXCEPT EVERCLEAR to a boil, stirring so sugar melts.
Turn down the heat and let the mixture simmer about 15 minutes.
Take off the stove and let completely cool down before adding liquor.

I put mine in mason jars to give it the homemade moonshine look..you can use any kind of bottle
Enjoy!!

COQUITO (PUERTO RICAN EGG NOG)

recipe makes about 6 cups

3 Egg yolks
1 can of Coco Lopez
1 15 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 12 oz can of evaporated milk
1 13.5 oz can of coconut milk
1 tsp real vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup white rum (I bumped it up to 1-1/2 cups in my last batch, too many complaints of it being weak, which is how I like it.)

Put 3 yolks in blender first and blend well until light yellow.

Put rest of ingredients in blender and blend until frothy. All ingredients did not fit in my blender at once so I used half of each can in the first batch. I did not use more egg yolks in the second batch. Then I combined the 2 batches.

Serve ice cold with dash of cinnamon on top.
