There are a few differences between a flavoured liqueur and flavoured liquor. Unlike a flavoured vodka or rum, liqueurs are also made with a mixture of nuts, herbs and fruits as well as sugar. Flavoured liquor does not include sugar. Nut flavours are common among different liqueurs.

Peanut

Peanut liquors are not as common as other nut-based liqueurs, but they do exist. Peanut Rum Cream and Peanut Lolita are peanut-based. These liqueurs are most often used in baking or on ice cream for additional flavouring. They are best when mixed with chocolate liqueur.

Almonds

Amaretto is one of the most common liqueurs derived from nuts. Made with almond extract and apricot pits, amaretto is often served as a drink or on top of sweets like ice cream. Instead of using flavoured creamer in coffee, try amaretto. Ratafia is similar to amaretto. It is also made with almonds. However, this is a brandy that is flavoured with almonds and sweetened with sugar; therefore it's also considered a liqueur.

Hazelnut

Frangelico is a common liqueur derived from hazelnuts. Often used in coffee or on ice cream, this liqueur can be substituted with other nut-based liqueurs. Frangelico is also used to add flavour to baked goods as well as the main ingredient in peanut butter and jelly shots. Nocello is another hazelnut liqueur that also has a tint of walnut flavouring.

Other Nuts

Dumante is a liqueur made from pistachios. This is a high-end liqueur. Bellota is a popular liqueur that is made from acorns. Nocino is also nut-based, made with green walnuts for the rich flavour.
