Aging, Straining, filtering, and Drinking Your Chili Agave Liqueur

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

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.

Congratulations, You Have Completed Making this Awesome Chili Agave 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.
  • * Use caution when handling hot peppers. Use gloves if possible and wash hands thoroughly.
  • Hot peppers and chili sharpness are dependent on how fresh they are for sharpness so add or subtract the amount you put in accordingly.
