Hey Guys and Gals!

Are you looking for an awesome Finger Citron Liqueur Recipe? You now have no reason to look any further; you have just found what you have been looking for! This is a recipe for the most awesome tasting Finger Citron Liqueur in the world.


  • ¾ cup of cacao nibs
  • 3 cups of blanco mezcal

Utensils Tips

Here is a list of the simplest utensils that you can use; the ones Mom should already have in the kitchen:)


– cheesecloth
– saucepan
– small funnel
– glass bottles, or storage containers, for bottling and serving, you can either use the glass Jar you used before, or just buy a second one. 


  • Place the cacao beans and mezcal into your jar. When you pour in the mezcal make sure all the cacao nibs are covered in mezcal. If you need to add in some more mezcal, close the container.

Aging, Straining, Filtering, and Drinking Your Cacao Mezcal Liqueur

Shake well and store away from sunlight in a cool and dry place for a minimum of 2 weeks.

After the allotted time of aging, strain your liqueur through several layers of cheesecloth.

It always helps when you moisten the cheesecloth first, it enables the liquid to permeate more smoothly saving you some precious liqueur.

Once you get to the point where you have strained everything out, you can gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice.

If you still need to strain your liqueur further due to lack of clarity, you can strain it 1 more time through a coffee strainer.

Place your aged liqueur in the fridge. Keep it well hidden, from your family and friends so it will remain your secret surprise for your next party. And don’t forget, always serve cold!

Congratulations, You Have Completed Making this Awesome Cacao Liqueur Recipe!

You now need a bottle and a label which are cool enough to compliment your hard work. Honestly, if you put it into a cheap bottle, people will make fun of you. BUT, if it looks good, people will rave about it!
