Homemade Grand Marnier (Orange Liqueur)

10 oranges
1 (750-ml) bottle vodka
3 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 cups sugar

Using a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from the oranges in long strips (reserve the oranges for another use). Using a small sharp knife, trim away the white pith from the orange peels; discard the pith. Place the orange peels in a 2-quart pitcher. Pour the vodka over the peels and cover with plastic wrap. Steep the orange peels in the vodka for 4 days, or up to 1 week at room temperature.

Stir the water and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Cool completely. Pour the sugar syrup over the vodka mixture. Cover and let stand at room temperature overnight. Strain the orange liqueur through a mesh strainer. Discard the peels. Transfer the orange liqueur to wine bottles (reuse the Vodka bottle!). Seal the bottles and store in a cool dry place.

This will keep for months, and I usually only make it once a year, or when it runs out.

I went to the blog entry “Homemade Grand Marnier” and I am confused… I don’t have a link to anything in that post?

Could you please tell me where the incorrect link is you saw, and I’ll be more than happy to correct the link and redirect it back to you~ 😀

I do remember your blog, and have favorited it but I just don’t know where you might have seen that post- I post nearly every day…
