Peels of 6 oranges
2 whole cloves
3 c vodka
1 c sugar
1/2 c water
Rind of 1 lemon
Cut & scrape clean orange peels of all pith; then chop fine. Slightly crush cloves. Place finely chopped orange peels & cloves in glass jar with vodka,
cover tightly & steep 6 days; shaking mixture daily. Strain through coffee filter paper. Make sugar syrup by combining sugar, water & lemon rind in saucepan,
bringing to boil; then covering & simmering 30 min. Stir cooled sugar syrup into strained orange mixture, plus a drop of yellow & red food coloring, if
desired. Seal & store in dark place.
Note: 1 tsp glycerin per qt of finished liqueur will produce a thicker consistency.
