→ 9 large organic oranges
→ 1 bottle of Tito’s Vodka (750 ml)
→ 3½ cups Poland Spring water
→ 2½ cups sugar
Using a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from the oranges in strips. Make sure you do not get any white pith on the peels.
Put peels in a 2-3 quart pitcher.
Pour vodka over peels and cover with plastic wrap.
Store in a dry place at room temperature for 7 days.
After 7 days, place the water and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves – about 5 minutes or so.
Pour the syrup over the vodka mixture.
Cover and store another 24 hours at room temperature.
Strain the orangecello through a mesh strainer and discard the peels.
Transfer orangecello to bottles.
Seal and refrigerate. It will last up to a month.
Serve over crushed ice. You can add a dash of cream as well.
