After one disasterous attempt at mead making Iv'e turned to cordial. I'm guessing from the previous posts that Loki and cordial are the same thing but maybe Loki isn't aged long? I was told that I should let my cordials sit for a minimum of three months and that six would be better. I started a batch of blackberry and a batch of peach a couple of weeks ago and have some cherries waiting to be pitted and covered in vodka.

loki, since it's primarily made with various extracts, CAN be drunk immediately- it does benefit from aging, though! Oh, and most cordials are vodka or brandy- where loki is always Everclear... otherwise, yes, it's the exact same premise

I remember seeing a post that you were making Apple Pie Loki, this year.  Are you using Apple Pie liqueur in yours?

Nope- it'll be boiled apple cider (it's cider reduced to a syrup) brown sugar, allspice and cloves

it all depends on what result you are looking for- adding the liquer would certainly make a more intense flavor...

Really, i just experiment- I have lots of hits and misses! But I've never had one that wasnt at least good to mix with something...

I love nutella, and the loki is even better.

My nutella will start filtering tonight- I'm really hopeful it comes out well! I have to have at least one non-failure batch ='D

Nutella filtered, may run through one more time... now to add sugar, taste, and decide if I need to add some hazelnut extract- I think the dark cocoa powder I used may have overwhelmed the hazelnuts...

I've got mine all made up and aging. I have made pumpkin pie, chocolate almond, white chocolate carmel, and white chocolate macadamia. I have some left from last year too, blackberry, butterscotch, and vanilla.
Don't forget to smell the roses, but watch out for the thorns!
