Arancello is a liqueur made from the peels of Oranges whose alcohol content ranges from 18% to 30% vol.
Sweet-tasting and with a characteristic orange color, Arancello is made by letting the orange peels macerate in pure alcohol.
Ingredients to prepare about 3 liters of Arancello:
- orange peels from 2 orange
- 1 liter (33.8 oz) of dry vodka
- 5 cups of granulated sugar
- 8 cups of water
At the end of steeping, a syrup of water and sugar is added and allowed to rest in the bottle for at least 20 to 30 days before being enjoyed.
Excellent as a digestive, it is consumed after meals, but can also be used to wet or flavor sponge cakes, fruit salads and ice cream.
The preparation is very simple, just follow the steps and use fresh orange peels, as they are rich in essential oils that give Arancello its unique and strong aroma and taste.
Wash the Oranges well and dry them, then peel them with a potato peeler (taking only the orange part and leaving the white part because it might impart a bitter taste to the liquor).
Place the peels of Oranges in a glass jar with an airtight seal, add the pure alcohol and let macerate at least 7-10 days, taking care to shake the jar at least once a day to let the ingredients mix well.
After the necessary time has elapsed, strain the liquid through a fine-mesh strainer.
Prepare the syrup by placing the water and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil, stirring continuously until the sugar is dissolved.
Allow the syrup to cool and combine the flavored alcohol with the previously strained Oranges zest, mix well and pour into one or more sterilized, airtight glass bottles.
Store the bottles in a cool, dark place for about 20 to 30 days before consuming.
