How to make alcoholic sugars: tastes

Here are the combinations and doses to make your alcoholic sugars:

  • Alcoholic vanilla sugars: in a jar put the cubes and a vanilla bean cut in half lengthwise and the relative seeds.
  • Alcoholic tangerine sugars: get some organic tangerines and put the grated rind of two of them in the jar.
  • Licorice sugars: two sticks of licorice cut into small pieces will give perfume and color to your digestive.
  • Alcoholic mint sugars: 10-12 mint leaves added to the alcohol will give aroma and color. If you want you can make everything even fresher with lemon or lime zest.
  • Orange and Cinnamon Zucchini: There is nothing more winter than this pairing. Put the orange zest cut into strips in the jar (be careful to remove the white part well) and two cinnamon sticks.


The sugars can be kept for over a year in a cool and dry place. They will be the perfect substitutes for the more classic homemade liqueurs .
