Don't Throw Out those Orange Peels!
Say you're making a lovely orange tart, and have supremed and segmented five gorgeous oranges and now have a rather large pile of peels all orange and glowing and pleading with you not to put them into the municipal compost. They have other things in mind. Like vodka. Seriously.
Push those peels into a mason jar, and add some nice, oily coffee beans if you are a coffee lover, add a few tablespoons of sugar, fill with vodka and shake. (Shake after you have secured the lid - but if you haven't figured that out yet, you may not need any more vodka in your system.)
Makes for a delicious after dinner sipper!
