Christmas Calendar Door 9 - Christmas Aquavit

If you start this Christmas Aquavit today, it will ready to use at Christmas. It is "old" family recipe, which I have got from my Godmother. And I been making for it for Christmas the last couple of years.

This Christmas aquavit has a wonderful flavour of orange without being sweet. And it goes very well with the cold and warm dishes served at Christmas.

I find, that the glass with the dried orange peel and the aquavit looks like modern art, perhaps you could call it food art ?

Christmas Aquavit:
  • 1.0 l Brøndums Snaps - crystal clear aquavit with a mild caraway flavour
  • 4 organic oranges
  1. Peel the oranges with potato peeler, avoid to have to much of the white part of the peel.
  2. Dry the peel at 100'C in the oven for 1-1½ hours - the peel most not be burned.
  3. Place the dried peel in 1 l glass
  4. Add the aquavit.
  5. Place the dried peel in 1 l glass
  6. Add the aquavit.
  7. Be patient for 14 days before removing the peel and the aquavit is ready for consumption.
