hist-brewing: Historic Liqueur -Reply

Thu Apr 1 15:45:08 PST 1999

To further clarify my question.

I am interested in making a carbonated liqueur and wondered if it would
be at all period.  The problem is, with liqueur you can not continue to
ferment for carbonation because of the high alcohol content. So what I
was wondering was first, is there any references to carbonated
liqueurs pre 1700's, and second, how would this have been
accomplished (i.e. combination with or fortification of fermented sparkling
beverage, dilution with naturally carbonated spring water, etc...).  I plan
to cheat for mine and use my CO2 tank.  I'll make it even if I can't justify it
historically, but it would be nice to say it was somehow period, and not
just magic.
