Liqueur vs. Waldmeister

By Jaxson

Main Difference

The main difference between Liqueur and Waldmeister is that the Liqueur is a alcoholic beverage, sweetened and flavored distilled spirit and Waldmeister is a operetta by Johann Strauss II

  • Liqueur

    A liqueur (US: , UK: ) is an alcoholic drink flavored variously by fruits, herbs, spices, flowers, nuts or cream combined with distilled spirits. Often served with or after dessert, they are typically heavily sweetened and un-aged beyond a resting period during production, when necessary, for their flavors to mingle.

    Liqueurs are historical descendants of herbal medicines. They were made in Italy as early as the 13th century, often prepared by monks, (as in Chartreuse). Today they are produced the world over, commonly served straight, over ice, with coffee, in cocktails, and used in cooking.

    In some areas of the United States and Canada liqueurs are also referred to as cordials or schnapps, though the terms refer to different beverages elsewhere.

  • Waldmeister

    Waldmeister (Woodruff) is an operetta written by Johann Strauss II to a libretto by Gustav Davis. It was first performed on 4 December 1895 at the Theater an der Wien. Although not as popular as some of Strauss’ other operettas, such as Der Zigeunerbaron and Die Fledermaus, it was given eighty-eight performances, and was much admired by Johannes Brahms, a friend of the composer.
