So I had the second session of my liqueur class this past Saturday. It was an excellent group of 6 people. We had a slightly different round of infusions including Blueberry and Apple Brandy. Though the most popular infusion was unquestionably fresh ginger. I mean it seriously swept the popularity contest. A couple of the interesting combinations that were created during the class included Apricot Tea, Ginger and Orange. There was also a really delightful strawberry, lemon and black pepper mixture. I was surprised at how delightfully bright and poppy the mixture of fruit and black pepper really was.
No one really did much with the habanero infusion, and I think I overwhelmed them with the cinnamon comparison taste test that I started the class with. Definitely something to note for next time.
As this was the second session of the liqueur class it's probably going to be a while before I do another one. That said I am hoping to continue to update this blog periodically with new infusion ideas and new drink mixtures. I hope everyone has been enjoying the blog and keeps experimenting.
