GRAND MARNIER TYPE LIQUEUR

4 cups 80 proof vodka
4 oranges, juice and zest
3 cups white sugar
1 Tbsp coriander seed
3 oz imitation brandy flavor
brown food dye

Cut or scrape the orange colored part off the orange peel. This
is the zest and is quite rich in aromatic essences. Be careful
not to get any of the white pith of the peel since it is very
bitter. Squeeze the oranges and strain the juice well. In a mixing
jar place the orange juice, zest, vodka and the coriander seed.
Cover and leave to infuse for two weeks. Drain through a coarse
sieve and return to the mixing jar. Discard the residue. Add the
brandy flavor and the sugar. Shake vigorously until the sugar
is dissolved. Leave to clear. This liqueur is very slow to clear,
so be patient. When clear, two weeks or more, decant and add brown
food dye previously mixed with a small amount of the liqueur.
This liqueur should be a pale brown color so go very easy with
the brown food coloring, lest you end up with a dark brown liqueur.
