Chili Liqueur Recipe

Hey Guys and Gals!

Are you looking for an awesome Chili 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 Chili Liqueur in the world.


  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 sticks of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper corns
  • 1 serrano pepper chopped in half
  • 1 red or green jalapeno pepper chopped in half
  • 5 dried chili peppers, remove stems
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 1/2 cups vodka you can replace a 1/2 cup with agave

Utensils Tips

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



Place all the ingredients besides the vodka in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and then leave on a simmer for 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat. Let the mixture cool completely.

Remove all the large solids from the syrup mixture, and pour the syrup into a quart jar or other glass container. Add the vodka to your jar, seal and agitate.

Aging, Straining, filtering, and Drinking Your Chili Liqueur

Shake well and store away from sunlight in a cool and dry place for 1week.

After 1 week or so of aging, 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.

Congratulations, You Have Completed Making this Awesome Chili 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!

Notes on Utensils and Ingredients
  • Glass is always preferable when working with strong alcohol. Avoid plastic as much as possible.
  • Use organic ingredients to avoid pesticide residues.
