Apricot brandy

A sweet apricot-flavoured liqueur which is based on grape brandy. The apricot kernels are included in the production process and give the liqueur a subtle hint of almond. De Kuyper Apricot Brandy is available from Waitrose.

Apricot brandy is an ideal aperitif or after dinner drink. Pour a little apricot brandy over vanilla ice cream and serve with shortbread biscuits for a quick dessert. Add a splash of apricot brandy to fruit compote and serve with whipped cream.
