Author/Submitted by: GLORIOUS LIQUEURS
4.00 md Navel oranges
1.00 md Lemon

Rinse and dry the oranges and the lemon. Use the shredding side of a
cheese grater to scrape only the orange part off the oranges; be
careful not to scrape off the white, bitter part. Scrape the peel off
half the lemon the same way. Put the orange and lemon zests in a
glass jar; add the vodka. Seal tightly and let steep for 3 days in a
cool, shaded place, shaking the jar once a day.
Strain the flavored vodka into a clean bowl; whisk in the honey until
it dissolves and the mixture clears. Stir in the optional colorings
and glycerine. Pour the liquid into a clean glass bottle, or bottles,
seal tightly, and allow to mature for at least a week before using.
Store at room temperature.
