(Susan - slehmkuhl517)

From: Classic Liqueurs by Long & Kibbey

1/3 cup orange zest
1/2 cup Splenda
2 cups cognac or French brandy
1/2 teaspoon glycerine (optional, for texture)

Place zest and Splenda in a small bowl. Mash together with the back of a wooden spoon or pestle. Continue until sweetener is absorbed into zest. Place in aging container. Add cognac.

Stir, cap and age in a cool, dark place 2 to 3 months. Shake monthly. After initial aging, strain and filter. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Cap and age 3 months more before serving.

*Seville oranges produce the authentic taste but any type of orange peel/zest may be used with good results.
