Orange Liqueur

Source: old magazine clipping

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.

Grant me the Serenity to prioritize things I cannot delegate, the Courage to say No when I need to,

and the Wisdom to know when to go home.
