Question: What is made mostly of rum and is keeping me happy all holiday season long?
Answer: Liqueur des îles.
Bonus: It’s made partially of fruit, therefore it’s healthy and practically a salad, amirite, people?!
Over the past few months, I’ve made quite a few of my grandmother’s recipes and they’ve all been delicious savory meals or sweet desserts (search category Kreyol Kitchen for more). But I realized I hadn’t made an alcoholic drink since last year so I wanted to see what other boozy beverages she loved. Liqueur des îles caught my eye because of the process. It’s essentially three steps over the course of 30 days and the wait is worth it. So let’s get to it!
