Orange Digestif

If you took orange flowers and let them blossom in a bottle of alcohol, you’d have an idea of how floral, citrusy, and flavorful this digestif is.

What to buy: We chose Everclear 151 grain alcohol to use in our digestifs; it picks up the flavoring elements much faster than vodka.

This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Digestifs project.

Instructions

  1. 1Using a vegetable peeler, remove orange peel in wide strips, making sure to avoid the white pith.
  2. 2Place peels in a 1-quart glass jar with a tightfitting lid, add alcohol, cover, and let steep, at room temperature, undisturbed, for 6 days.
  3. 3After 6 days, remove peels and add simple syrup. Stir to combine. Store in the freezer.
