Recipe for ‘Liqueur 44’

When we moved to Brittany we discovered this ‘Liqueur 44’ that everyone over here seem to make!

Here is the recipe:

You will need:
1 organic orange
44 coffee beans
44 sugar lumps
And 1 litre of eau de vie (pure alcohol)

If you live in France, just ask around, you will always find someone who knows someone who makes the eau de vie !
Get a huge jar from your local supermarket.

Stab the orange 44 times!
Put a coffee beans in each holes,
Put the orange in the jar,
Add the 44 sugar lumps and pour the eau de vie on top of it. Close the jar.
Leave it to ‘rest’ for 44 days.
It will taste like Grandmarnier, an orange liqueur with a little extra flavor. It is a nice 'digestif', something you can drink at the end of a meal after the coffee.
