Quick but elegant makes an ideal recipe for me. I place all the fixings for the cordials on a tray and let each person make their own. It's fun and saves me even more time. —Diane Nemitz, Ludington, Michigan

"I made this for Christmas and this was easy and delicious!! The only thing different that I did was using orange juice concentrate for the orange liqueur by taste. I definitely will be making this again. Everyone loved this. Thank you TOH for this recipe."
