Handmade Gifts: Vanilla Caramel Liqueur

I love Thanksgiving (A day all about food? What’s not to love?), but nothing excites me more than when I get to give homemade gifts to all those people I toasted to on Turkey Day. This year, however, time is moving at super-sonic speeds and I need a little help getting into the spirit of the season. Enter a delightfully sweet and super-easy-to-make, well, spirit.

I like to spread holiday cheer then with a little nip (or two), which is why I simply adore Sabrina Sue’s recipe for Vanilla Caramel Liqueur. It’s unlike anything I have ever seen before—you cook the condensed milk still in its can before adding vanilla and rum. The result is a truly unique and heartfelt gift that will make your favorite people smile. Cheers!
