At Wares of Knutsford we’ve noticed that our customers have been using our mini liqueur bottles for all sorts of things apart from liqueurs!
Uses for liqueur mini bottles
First of all, of course, you can use our liqueur mini bottles for liqueurs. Whether you are making them for personal use, to give as gifts or to sell, you are sure to be able to find an appropriate bottle among our huge range. There are classic whiskey bottle shapes and fancy, decorative bottles, all available in packs of six, 12, 24 or 36.
Our small bottle selection is also popular with those making wedding favours, to hold essential oils, craft supplies or small quantities of ingredients. They are great for sample sizes of cosmetics and aromatherapy products too.
Bottles are available in clear, blue, amber and green glass, with 5ml smallest size in the range. A number of different caps are offered including screw tops, corks, droppers or swing stoppers.
Recipes for liqueur mini bottles
If you have a winter wedding coming up or simply fancy spreading a little colour, try some jewel coloured liqueur in mini bottles – it’s cute, cheerful and warming on a cold day!
Blackberry vodka liqueur
If you still have some frozen blackberries left in the freezer and are all jammed out, this delicious, deep purple hued liqueur is a very adult way to use them. Quantities given make about a litre.
- 750ml good quality vodka
- 450g blackberries, fresh or frozen
- 600g caster sugar
- 250ml water
Heat the sugar with the water gently until completely dissolved, then leave the mixture to cool.
Add the vodka, fruit and sugar syrup to a large container, trying to avoid crushing the berries. Seal and allow to infuse for at least a couple of weeks. Stir carefully every few days. Strain the mixture through a fine muslin cloth into your mini liqueur bottles and store in a cool, dark place for a couple of weeks before using.
This plummy liqueur has a sweet and sour flavour that works beautifully with hard, full flavoured cheeses such as a sharp cheddar.
- 450g damsons, skins pricked
- 225g sugar
- 700ml good quality gin
Add all the ingredients to a large, wide necked jar, seal and shake gently to help the sugar dissolve. Store in a cool, dark place for 8-12 weeks, turning the bottle every few days. Strain into your liqueur mini bottles.
