Ouarante Quatre takes its name from the 44 coffee beans and 44 sugar cubes that flavor it. After 44 days, it is ready to drink - or it can be stored in the refrigerator, although that is rare in our household.
Makes one quart
1 quart of Vodka
44 Coffee Beans
44 sugar cubes
Thoroughly wash the orange. With a knitting needle or skewer, pierce the skin 44 times and insert a coffee bean into each hole, pushing it well into the flesh of the orange.
Put the orange in a 2-quart wide-mouthed jar. Add sugar cubes and vodka and tighter the lid. Shake the container once a day for 44 days
Strain the liquer through a coffee filter and funnel into a 1-quart bottle, or individual smaller bottles. ENJOY!!! (The picture shows a double batch)
