Having recently gotten into making cordials, my husband and I made several batches as gifts this holiday season.  And being a crafty sort of person, I couldn't help decorating the bottles as best I could!  I didn't have time to get all of them prettied up, but here are the ones I did.

First, I give you banana cordial (recipe at http://brewerylane.com/liqueurs/recipes/banana.html)


And Murfitt (a traditional Christmas beverage, or so the internet tells me - recipe at http://www.guntheranderson.com/liqueurs/christma.htm)


The best part is that they taste as good as they look!   Grin

adiemonster, I got the bottles from Oriental Trading Company.  I think they were intended for sand art, but they worked for our purposes!  The corks don't fit as tightly as we might have hoped, so we sealed the ones to be used as stocking stuffers with beeswax (we just let a beeswax candle drip around where the cork and bottle meet).
