As American as “apple pie,” liqueurs were a tradition in early America. Most of the early American settlers developed their own secret recipes for making liqueurs they would offer arriving guests as a “cordial” refreshment. Today the tradition remains but is expanded to using these same cordials in inspired cocktails and as a pairing with other food and drink. Enjoy Sidetrack Distillery’s return to tradition with fruit forward liqueurs on their own, in cocktails, or paired with your favorite dessert.
