Aging, Straining, filtering, and Drinking Your Habanero Honey Liqueur
Shake well and store away from sunlight in a cool and dry place for 2 days.
Let age for a minimum of a week, strain your liqueur through several layers of cheesecloth.
It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.
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.
If you feel that your liqueur is to sharp you can add a little more sugar. To strong of a taste? add some more whiskey or filtered water.
