  • Author: Erika (Cuoche in Vacanza)
  • Yield: 3 bottles 1x


  • 5 organic oranges (or organic Lemons)
  • 500 gr 2 cups Caster Sugar
  • 500 ml 2 cups Water
  • 500 ml 2 cups pure grain alcohol (you can use 100% pure vodka, but it won’t taste the same)


  1. Peel the Oranges (make sure you don’t get the white part)
  2. Place the orange skins in a big jar and pour in the grain (pure) alcohol
  3. Seal the jar and let it infuse for about 4 days in a dark place
  4. The fourth day make a simple syrup: pour the sugar in a pot with the water, let it dissolve and boil for about 5 minutes
  5. Let it cold
  6. The day after, using a strainer, add the “orange” alcohol to the syrup (so that orange skins don’t go into the arancello)
  7. Mix it well for a couple of minutes
  8. Fill up some glass empty bottles
  9. Arancello is now ready! Just drink it when is very cold, better if you put in freezer
  10. Serve it in small glasses
  11. Store in a dry and dark place the other bottles
