Introduction: Liqueur 44

About: I'm a french mother, travel and cooking lover

Liqueur 44 is an original Norman liqueur. Very simple to make, it can be drink befor or after dinner.
The base of this liqueur is Calvados, a French apple alcohol make in Normandy, in Calvados more exactly.

Excessive drinking is dangerous for the health; alcoholic beverages should be consumed with moderation. if you drink it don't drive !

Step 1: Shopping List

The ingredients you need are :

  • Calvados
  • Bio orange
  • 44 pieces of sugar
  • 44 spices : you can use 44 coffee seeds, 44 cloves or 44 cardamom pods (my favorite)
  • you can add cinnamon but it's optional

You have to find the biggest mansion jar you can. I use 3 L one.

Step 2: Fill the Jar

Prepare your ingredients for each mansion jar you want to fill :

  • 44 pieces of sugar, an orange, 44 spices..

With a little knife pierce 44 little holes in the orange and fill the holes with spices.

In each jar add sugar, cinnamon and Orange then fill with Calvados.

Step 3: Nearly Ready to Drink

Now it's the most dificult part, you have to wait 44 days before drink.

You have to shake your jar every weeks.

At the end of the 44 days, you have to filter the liqueur with a coffee filter then bottle it

A votre santé !

    I read how to make this almost 20 years ago. except with dark rum, and it didn't include the sugar that I can remember. always wanted to make it and never got around to it. what purpose does the sugar serve (other than sweetness)?

    Only sweetness I think because old Calvados could be a very strong alcohol more than 70°! You can try with rum, let me know how is it !

    I think this is something my mother would enjoy very much. i will let you know how it goes.
