Fennel Digestif

If black licorice were to turn into liqueur, it’d be akin to the flavor of this delicate yet stiff digestif.

What to buy: We chose Everclear 151 grain alcohol to use in our digestifs; it picks up the flavoring elements much faster than vodka.

This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Digestifs project, as well as our DIY Holiday Gifts Advent Calendar.
