Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take the zest from 5 oranges, and let this dry for 5 days.
  2. When they are dry, macerate them in rum for 3 days, leaving the jar used outdoors in light sun (semi-shade).
  3. Filter this liquid.
  4. Make a syrup with the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and the vanilla bean. (Slit the vanilla bean to release full flavor into the syrup.).
  5. Bring this to the boil, lower the heat, but keep it bubbling away for 10 - 15 minutes. Skim the surface frequently.
  6. Let the syrup cool.
  7. Add the syrup to the filtered rum. Filter this, and bottle it, or pour it into a large, clean juice jar with a lid.
  8. This recipe will yield about 75cl, the same volume as a bottle of wine.
