A liqueur is an alcoholic drink that is often flavoured with herbs, fruits, or spices. It is typically sweeter than other types of alcohol, and it has a lower alcohol content. Liqueurs are often used in mixed drinks, and they can also be enjoyed on their own. There are many different types of liqueurs available, including orange liqueur, coffee liqueur, and mint liqueur. When choosing a liqueur, it is important to consider the flavour profile and the alcohol content. Some liqueurs are very sweet, while others are only mildly sweet. The alcohol content of a liqueur can range from 15% to 40%. Higher-proof liqueurs are typically used in cocktails, while lower-proof liqueurs are often enjoyed on their own or over ice.
