Sweet herbal liqueur

Bottle of sweet herbal liqueur for cocktail recipes

Recipes that call for sweet herbal liqueur are often referring to Bénédictine, a cognac-based liqueur with an herbal, slightly sweet flavor. Less-commonly, recipes may call for for Jägermeister, Becherovka, or another local favorite – we’ll call out the specifics in recipe notes, and let you know appropriate substitutes.

If you happen to be lucky enough to live in an area where your neighborhood monks still make sweetened liqueurs from the herbs and flowers around the monastery, you can (and absolutely should!) try those local variations in any of the recipes listed here.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
