How to Make Homemade Liqueurs

Did you know you can make your own homemade Liqueurs, like Amaretto, Cointreau, Kahlua, Grand Marnier and Chambord?  I'm not talking about fermenting a mash and distilling your own alcohol (which is generally illegal), I'm referring to buying some brandy, rum or vodka and making your own Liqueurs by mixing those with the right ingredients and spices!

And here's the kicker, you can make your own that taste as good or better than the originals AND cost 1/4 as much. How can it taste better, I hear you muttering?  Well, because those companies are looking to make a profit, so they cut corners, which you do not need to. Most of their price is markup; you can use good brandy, better than they use and still save 75%.
