Description (Some HTML is OK)

Ok, so here it is, the orange booze experiment as mentioned in a previous ramble.

The recipe originates from Lucy's Kitchen Notebook, but calls for eau de vie nature, which I've swapped for vodka, as the 90% proof spirit is hard to find (and likely illegal) in Britain.

It could so easily have all gone horribly wrong, but is actually pretty damn good. It's bitter, in a Vermouth sort of way, but still orangey, leading to a whole host of cocktail ideas: Marmalatini anyone? Actually it seems to be nicest over ice with plenty of lemonade and a good chunk of orange squeezed in.

Definitely the taste of this summer.


Makes 80 servings

  • ½ litre vodka
  • 2 litres white wine
  • 1kg Seville oranges
  • 750g sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • A demijohn

Preparation (Some HTML is OK)

Pulse the vodka, whole oranges, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla in a food processor till coarsely chopped.
Pour into a large, wide mouthed glass jar, add the wine and leave to macerate for a month.
Filter into clean glass bottles and store indefinitely.
