The Brews Now Ready

In late October I posted about some spirits I was making for event. It takes three months to 'take'. Well today I strained them and bottled them(I still had technically had about 10 more days ).I made two brews. One Prickly Pear and one Plum.I opened the Prickly Pear first, I had cut the skins to release the rich fuchsia color. The liquid was bright and syrupy. And the taste fantastic! I loved it. Sweet and fruity. I can envision many a martini made with this as a base.I then opened the plum, which was lighter in color and not as syrupy. For some reason there was a fizziness which surprised me. The flavor was lighter and less intense, but still good. I can't decide which was my favorite( OK maybe the Prickly Pear). I even mixed the remnants of both in a larger bottle to even flavors out. I love making my own liquors. Next is a Cream Limoncello for my good friend. I came about this from a suggestion from a fellow blogger about my Meyer lemon syrup. In talking to my friend she mentioned she loved Cream Limoncello. So stay tuned.

Hi Glamah, or should I say brewmeister!! I love your pretty bottles of brew. Make sure you save some of that Limoncello for yourself, it taste good in a lot of baked goods, use it instead of vanilla. Yummm, nice job!!

These look absolutely gorgeous. I will have to go back and make the plum one, but don't get many prickly pears around here unfortunatley. Can't wait for the Cream Limoncello.
