Your bottle of Licor 43 is better served when chilled. The easiest way is to keep the bottle in the fridge. You may also store it inside the freezer for around 2 to 3 hours only. If you keep it in the freezer for longer, the liquid will freeze.

2. Pour the liqueur into shot glasses until 2/3 full.

You may be thinking how many ounces are in a mini beer. Since, you only have to fill in a shot glass 2/3 full, this is equivalent to roughly 1.5 to 2 ounces of liquor.

3. Pour heavy cream on top of the Licor 43 shots.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of alcohol is Licor 43?

Licor 43 is a kind of liqueur that hails from Spain. Its main flavor is vanilla with a hint of citrus. This special liqueur is made with exactly 43 secret ingredients (citrus, fruits, herbs, and spices), hence the number 43 in its name.

Is Licor 43 keto-friendly?

Yes, it is keto friendly since it only has 11% calories per serving. Since a standard keto diet requires less than 25 grams of net carbs, this is acceptable. You may look into some keto crockpot recipes to pair with your booze to keep your diet aligned.

Is whipping cream and heavy cream the same thing?

The two have similar ingredients, with one having more milk fat than the other. Heavy whipping cream has at least 36% milk fat, while whipping cream contains 30 to 36% milk fat. Because heavy cream contains more milk fat, it’s creamier and it holds its shape better than whipping cream.
