Crème De Framboise Liqueur

Category: Fruit Liqueur

Date Tasted:
Country: France
Alcohol: 15%
Ruby color. Aromas and flavors of raspberry, blackberry and pomegranate, and cherry cream with a syrupy, lively, off-dry medium-to-full body and a refreshing, medium-length finish evoking notes of baked raspberries and candied raspberry and strawberry. Would adore this in a Clover Club or other cocktail modifications but this is so tasty that you can sip it after dinner on its own or use it to top a dessert.

Fruit Liqueur

Serve in a Copita
Fruit liqueurs are produced by two main methods, either purely with fruit juices or sometimes with fruit that has been steeped in alcohol. Numerous fruits are used in the production of fruit liqueurs, such as cherry, strawberry, raspberry, cassis and blackberry. Alcoholic content ranges from 15% to 30%.

These types of fruit liqueurs are produced throughout Europe, from France and Italy to Germany and Denmark. There are also some produced from the Caribbean, namely coconut liqueur.

While many of these fruit liqueurs are medium-sweet or even sweeter, there are some that are quite dry with a light bitterness. Most are meant for consumption on their own, sometimes before a meal, sometimes after.

This is an extremely popular category the world round, as many fruit liqueurs serve as the base of numerous cocktails.
