You can save a great deal of your holiday budget for gifting and entertaining by mixing up your own special cordials and liqueur. You will also have control of the ingredients. Use the less expensive vodka and whiskey — you add so much flavor that these will all taste smooth. Choose among the ideas below, starting with the orange cordial since that needs 6 weeks to develop.

Save up some nice wine bottles for your cordials. Soak off the labels, wash them, drain thoroughly, and put the corks back in as best you can.
