Thirsty Thursdays: Blood Orange Liquor

April 12, 2012
We are reaching the end of citrus season.  Take advantage of those last blood oranges and make this Italian orange liquor.  If blood oranges are unavailable, feel free to use your favorite varietal.  This orange liquor is delicious as an after dinner drink or added to dessert.
1/2 liter of pure grain alcohol (you can also use grappa, vodka or everclear)
the skin of 5 organic Sicilian blood oranges (careful not to skin the orange too deep - you don't want the white pith)
1/2 kilo of sugar
1 liter of water
