Homemade Arancello with Cinnamon and Cardamon on Punk Domestics

Strong, full of flavor and sweet, this home made drink is based on the classic Italian Arancello. Ready in 2 weeks, it is amazing served chilled, with ice or used in desserts. It is also great to give someone as a gift, especially if you play around with the presentation.

You will need:
  • the zest from 5 oranges
  • 1 l vodka
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 cardamon pods
  • 600 g sugar
  • 500 g boiled water

1st step: Week 1:

  1. Peel the orange zest, trying to avoid the white, bitter part. Place the zest, the cinnamon and the cardamon in a big jar.
  2. Pour the vodka on top of them.
  3. Seal the jar.
  4. Shake the jar everyday, for a week to combine all the flavors.

2nd step: Week 2:

  1. Place the sugar in a heatproof bowl.
  2. Pour the hot water over it and stir well, until all the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add the syrup over the vodka in the jar and stir.
  4. Let it sit in the jar for another week
  5. Shake the jar daily.
