Christmas Calendar 2021 Day 4 - Christmas liqueur


For some of the drinkable Christmas items you need to get started in good time, as the alcoholic versions need to infusion for minimum 2 weeks and other times up to 30-40 days.

Some years ago I tried to make this Christmas liqueur with orange, coffee beans and vanilla. It was not a hit for me personally. Coffee and I is not always a good combination. So, when I found this recipe in the weekly Danish magazine "Hendes Verden" I decided to give it a try, as there was no addition of coffee beans :-)

Christmas Liqueur:
  • 1 orange - organic - only the peel
  • 2 sticks of cinnamon
  • 15 cloves
  • 3 tablespoon of sugar
  • 4 seeds of cardamom - slightly crushed 
  • 1 vanilla pod - cut through
  • 1 bottle of vodka
  1. Add boiling water to the glass for 5 minutes or simply clean it
  2. Cut the vanilla pod through. 
  3. Add orange peel, sugar, vanilla pod, cinnamon sticks and cloves to the glass 
  4. Fill up the glass with the vodka.
  5. Turn the glass up side down each day
  6. Let the Christmas liqueur rest for 25-30 days
  7. Pour the Christmas liqueur through a sieve into a new clean bottle.
  8. Enjoy and merry Christmas
