Is this just another word for flavoring like an extract? The recipe says 1/4 cup liquor or eau-de-vie if I am spelling that correct. Does anyone know what this is? Also to flavor a buttercream possible a Neoclassic what liquor would be good? A few examples or suggestions would be great. I thought about Grand Monier but it is the priciest choice there. Thanks.
Eau de Vie is a fruit brandy. If you have ever seen Calvados(made from Apples), it is an Eau de Vie.
Eaux de Vie flavours also include: framboise (raspberry), pear, yellow plum and such. They aren't aged in barrels so they are colourless. Sorry if I'm rambling.
I think Grand Marnier is a good choice.
Thanks so much. I was way off. Thanks for your help.
