Licor 43 is a liqueur (sweetened liquor) from Spain that’s celebrating it’s 90th anniversary this year. It has a very good vanilla-and-spice flavor that makes this a very good choice for a liqueur in your home bar, since it goes well with lots of mixers, from vodka to rum, coffee, caramel, or even a rich, dark beer (like a stout).
Here are some cocktails I tried with Licor 43, including their “Mini Beer” shot:
43 & V (by Greg Mays)
- 1 1/2 oz Licor 43
- 1 1/2 oz of vodka
- build in a glass with a stir stick and serve on the rocks
- Fill a mini beer mug (or shot glass) with Licor 43 and top with well-shaken heavy cream. Pour the cream slowly so it floats on top. I found that the longer you let the cream sit, the more it will separate to the top.
