Your Favorite Liqueur?

I'm normally much of a liqueur fan, there are however two exceptions:

Goldwasser:



This is an extraordinary herbal liqueur made in Poland (Gdansk) since the 16th century. I can't describe its taste, it's incredibly complex (it's a secret combination of several dozen herbs and spices), but it leaves a long-lingering aftertaste of fresh lemon. Absolutely sublime.  cloudnine  It also contains real gold flakes - they don't have any particular taste per se, but it's great to shake the bottle and impress your guests.  Smile

Irish Cream:



This one needs no introduction, I suppose.  Smile

I've sampled a lot of liqueurs, and although I liked many, they always tend to be nauseating after a few sips (too sweet/intense). The two above I can never get enough of, however.

What are your favorite liqueurs?

Mine are Sambuca and Frangelico. Very good.


Obsessed is just a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.

I want to get rid of this nasty German naming of this liquor. It is Zlotnik Gdanski not Goldwasser.

"Nasty German naming"? Apparently, the Poles don't think so, because it says Goldwasser/Zlota Woda on my (last  Sad ) bottle (the one in the pic.) Gdansk (or Danzig  stirthepot  ) was a cosmopolitan German-speaking city when Golwasser was invented - the name is very old and IMO it's a good marketing decision to keep it.  Smile

I like Galliano. Not alone, but mixed with Vodka and Orange Juice to make Harvey Wallbangers, the greatest Mixed Drink ever.

Of Course...my favorite Liqueur probably has to be Jagermeister. I love drinking that stuff. Sometimes, most of the times, i drink too much.



Also, I like Rumple Minze and Goldschlager.

The question was about "liqueur", not "liquor".  Wink

I'm a big Glenlivet fan myself...that was always my dads drink when I was growing up - he'd come home from work each night and have a class on the rocks...now I do the same. Like father, like son I guess.

I know whats written on the bottle. And that depends on where the bottle is exported to or for domestic market.

You mean it was a city under German occupation for a good while. And the drink was invented by a dutchman, for the record.

There should be an age limit to post here. And some sort of an intelligence test, though I figure the numbers on this site would be drastically lower if that were the case.

To avoid further confusion, here's a visual aid for our dyslectic members:

COORS LIGHT:



= NOT LIQUEUR.

LIQUEUR:

Whisky = a LIQUOR (EL-EYE-CUE-YOU-OH-ARE).

Hope that helps.

Definitely Bailey's for me, preferrably caramel Bailey's. At the curling club I habitually have a hot chocolate with caramel Bailey's after every game. When the bartenders see me coming off the ice they turn on the kettle. Apparently this is now known as "April's drink" to some folks. "Can you make me April's drink?"  Smile

My friend from Finland brought me a bottle of cloudberry liqueur many years ago. It was really nice - very smooth! I've never looked for it in North America, although I suspect I could get it in Thunder Bay (home of the largest Finnish population outside of Finland).



But that was when I ruled the world
