W er toasting a special occasion or simply enjoying a quiet moment, Orangello is your companion for creating memories that sparkle with joy and flavor.



  • 6-8 large organic oranges
  • 1 liter of pure grain alcohol or high-proof vodka
  • 2-3 cups of granulated sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 4 cups of filtered water
  • A large glass jar (1-gallon capacity)
  • Cheesecloth or fine strainer
  • Glass bottles for storage
  1. Prepare the Oranges: Wash the oranges thoroughly to remove any pesticides or wax. Using a vegetable peeler or a sharp knife, carefully peel the oranges, taking only the orange part of the peel without the white pith, which can impart bitterness.
  2. Infusion: Place the orange peels in the large glass jar. Pour the grain alcohol or vodka over the peels, ensuring they are completely submerged. Seal the jar tightly and place it in a cool, dark place to infuse for about two weeks. Shake the jar gently every couple of days to mix the peels with the alcohol.
  3. Sugar Syrup: After the infusion period, prepare a sugar syrup by combining the sugar and water in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is fully dissolved. Allow the syrup to cool to room temperature.
  4. Combine: Once the syrup is cool, add it to the infused alcohol. Stir well to combine.
  5. Strain: Using cheesecloth or a fine strainer, filter out the orange peels from the liqueur. Ensure the liquid is clear and free of any solids.
  6. Bottle: Transfer the Orangello into glass bottles using a funnel. Seal the bottles and let them rest for at least one week to allow the flavors to meld. The longer it rests, the smoother the taste.
  7. Serve: Enjoy your homemade Orangello chilled, neat, or on the rocks. It also makes an excellent addition to cocktails, adding a burst of orange flavor.
Remember, the key to a great Orangello is patience; the longer it infuses and rests, the more complex and smooth the flavor will be. Enjoy the fruits of your labor with friends and family, and let Orangello be the highlight of your next gathering. Cheers!
