This recipe is from Saveur Magazine. This is a orange, coffee and rum liquer from the West Indies. It takes 44 days to make.


  1. Poke 44 1 inch slits all over the orange with the tip of a paring knife. Stuff a coffee bean into each slit.
  2. Put the orange, sugar and rum in a wide mouthed jar with a tight sealing lid. Place in a cool, dark spot, swirling the jar occasionally, for 44 days.
  3. Remove and discard the orange. Strain the liqueur through a cheesecloth lined strainer into a clean bottle and store in the refrigerator or freezer. Serve neat or over ice.

This is very nice. It turns rum into a orange-coffee liqueur. I had it with club soda over crushed ice and it was delicious. DH had it straight and loved it. Thanks for sharing!!
