Homemade Chocolate Raspberry “Liqueur”

There are a few spirits that sit back on the liquor cabinet shelf that I haven’t used in a while. On a whim I have begun playing with a few of those forgotten partially used bottles of liquor. The result isn’t always great, but sometime a winner comes through. Chocolate Raspberry Liqueur is one of those winning combinations. It turned out so well I made a special batch for a chocolate and raspberry loving friend for Christmas.

One Response to Homemade Chocolate Raspberry “Liqueur”

  1. About 10 years ago or more, I came across a Liqueur called Wild Spirit – Paddle your own Canoe, which was manufactured in Philadelphia, Pa. by World Wide Distillers Co. The product came in 2 strengths of Liqueur, one of which was 52.5% (105 Proof) & the other was weaker. They have since gone out of business & no-one else took up the manufacturing. I was wondering if , through your experience, a comparable recipe could be discovered, I would expect that the original would be proprietary. It was a Chocolate / Raspberry Schnapps type Liqueur & you can view the
    original bottles on the net. I would like to know if you can help me with this as I would like to learn to make liqueurs & you have the best site to learn from.
    Thank You,
