Grande Mariner's Shame - Orange Brandy
Grand Marnier tastes like fake cheap candy compared to this stuff. Cheers!
1. Prepare the following ingredients:
-The zest of 6 organic Valencia oranges - no pith!
-3/4 cup granulated white sugar
-750 ml Armagnac de Montal VS brandy or best you can find.
-Use a spare 1 liter liquor bottle to put everything in. Save the brandy bottle to filter back into.
2. In batches, combine sugar and zest with mortar and pestle. Pound until paste-like.
3. Mix in Armagnac and allow to macerate 4-6 months.
4. Filter through a coffee filter. It will take a while to filter!
