Bols Apricot Brandy
Bols Apricot has been THE apricot liqueur for a very long time. One of Bolsâ€™ stronger liqueurs, Bols Apricot uses fresh apricot juice to give it a richer, fuller flavor that matches its golden-amber color. The apricot fruitâ€™s stone,Â its kernel, is crushed, giving Bols Apricot a faint amaretto like flavor, supported by orange tones. Apricot liqueur is one of theÂ oldest Bols liqueur recipes, dating back to the 19thÂ century when it was calledÂ CrĂ¨me de Noyaux. The apricotÂ kernels used to be bought inÂ Marseille and were kept in a barrel filled with brandy. TheÂ distillation of this mixture gave a great result. As well as being the originalÂ apricot liqueur in the Mai Tai, Zombie, and Paradise Martini, it is surprisingly tasty just withÂ orange juice or Fever-Tree soda.
