In this class, you’ll learn to make herbal liqueurs! Amaro, St. Germain, and Chartreuse are all herbal liqueurs, made by infusing a lower ABV alcohol with herbs, fruits, and spices. You’ll walk away with a fantastic holiday gift for a host/hostess, friend, family member or just to enjoy yourself!

If you'd like to make a simple batch and follow along during class, you can have the following ingredients on hand:

Here’s the shopping list:
- 1 tea bag of your favorite herbal or black tea (a blend of flavors, like ginger turmeric tea, is fine)
- 8 ounces of your favorite hard alcohol, like bourbon, vodka or gin. 
- 1 8-ounce, pint or quart size jar (can be pre-used like an old jam jar!)
- 1 8-ounce pretty bottle or jar (can be pre-used like an old alcohol or jam jar!)
