Ingredients (3)

  • 3 medium oranges
  • 2 cups grain alcohol, such as Everclear 151
  • 1 1/2 cups Rich Simple Syrup

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.
