Cordials and Liqueurs

Liqueurs, Cordials, Schnapps cover a huge range of products. What they all share in common is that they are flavored spirits. The terms Liqueur and Cordial are interchangable. Schnapps, however, is a different story. Schnapps, a German word, " is the generic term for all white (clear) brandies distilled from fermented fruits. True Schnapps has no sugar added. Schnapps that are produced in the U.S. tend to be sweet. Lets look at the various kinds.
