2 c vodka or brandy
3/4 lb honey
3 tb orange rind, or 1/2 the
peel of an orange
1 c water, warm but not boiling
2 cinnamon sticks, 2 inches ea
Peel the orange find in one long spiral if possible, particularly
if you want an attractive presentation. Disolve the honey in the
water and add to the vodka and spices in an attractive bottle with
the orange peel.
Let stand, well corked shaking every few days. I like the flavor
well developed, and do not usually strain it at all, but check it
after 2 or 3 weeks, and if you don't want too strong an orange
spice flavor, strain the peel and spices out and rebottle.
