Homemade Orange Liqueur

Homemade Orange Liqueur Arancello Recipe

Orange liqueur is so easy to make at home. You’ll just need three ingredients: vodka, orange peels and sugar. You can use homemade orange liqueur in cocktails or desserts to replace orange-flavored liqueurs: such as Curacao, Arancello, Grand Marnier, Cointreau and Triple sec.

Homemade Orange Liqueur Curacao Grand Marnier


  • 9 oranges, washed and dried
  • 750ml vodka – you can also use rum or brandy
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 cups water

Peel the oranges. Put the orange peels into a large glass jar. Pour vodka over the orange peels and close the jar with a lid. Let stand at room temperature for 1 week to 1 month.

Remove the orange peels. Bring sugar and water to a boil. Simmer till the sugar is dissolved. As soon as the syrup has cooled, pour it into the orange-flavored vodka. And the homemade orange liqueur is ready for use.
