Need recipes for "Cordially Yours" liqueur maker (Donivier)

Apologies for the late reply. The cordial maker maintains a very low heat for a lot of hours, which aids in infusing the flavors (fruits, peels, herbs, whatever). Using a stovetop runs the risk of overheating and damaging the liqueur. Using this very low heat makes the flavors are a bit more intense. It also speeds the process a bit, though the finished product still needs to sit for a while. Orange brandy comes out really great.

Need recipes for "Cordially Yours" liqueur maker (Donivier)

It's been a while since I used my Cordially Yours liqueur maker, and I've managed to lose the recipe booklet. If anyone out there has one, could you post a few recipes from it? I particularly liked an orange liqueur recipe in the book--other fruit-based recipes would be great too. If I could just see a few recipes, I could probably figure out proportions (sugar/fruit/alcohol) and processing time for other types of liqueurs. Since processing time on the machine goes from 3 hours to 23 hours, I don't want to guess wrong.

Thank you! No one seems to have this product any more. I've googled, searched ebay, and even written the manufacturer, who says the product is too old for anyone to still have the instruction book.
