DIRECTIONS

  • Place zest and sugar in a small bowl. Mash together with the back of a wooden spoon or a muddle. Continue until sugar is absorbed into zest.
  • Place in a container with a tight seal, preferably glass. Add cognac, stir and seal.
  • Allow to age in a cool, dark place 2 to 3 months. Shake monthly.
  • After initial aging, strain and filter. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Cap and age 3 months more before serving.
  • Note: Seville oranges produce the authentic taste but any type of orange peel/zest may be used with good results.
