Video: How to Make Red Hot Liqueur
This beautiful, sweet-and-spicy, cinnamon-flavored liqueur is so easy to make.
Watch Chef John turn a favorite candy from childhood into an intoxicating adult beverage that’s wonderfully sweet and spicy. It couldn't be easier. You’ll pulverize Red Hots into a powder and dissolve the powdered candy in vodka. Then simply strain it, and you’re ready to sip this sweet, spicy, cinnamony cordial! The beautiful red color makes it a great cordial to give at Christmas time. Of course, it's also a love potion, making it the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Be careful, though, the sweetness and cinnamon spice of the Red Hots really mellows the vodka burn, making for some very easy drinking. Enjoy in healthy moderation. See more Chef John videos >>
