Bitter Orange Grappa Liqueur Recipe

Hay Guys and Gals, are you Looking for an awesome Bitter Orange Grappa Liqueur recipe? You now have no reason to look any further! You have just found what you have been looking for, this is a recipe for the most awesome tasting Bitter Orange Grappa Liqueur Recipe in the world.


  • 4-5 bitter oranges
  • 1 liter of Grappa
  • some cloves
  • a few cinnamon barks
  • 2 table spoons of sugar



Cut the orange into chunks, combined with all the rest of the ingredients, when adding in the sugar, sugar is a sweetener add more to taste or skip all together.

My advice if you use sweet oranges though bitter oranges are the reel stuff skip the sugar.

Combined all the ingredients together in a container close and put aside to let age.

Aging, Straining, filtering, and Drinking Your Bitter Orange Grappa Liqueur

Shake well and store away from sunlight in a cool and dry place for 2 months.

After 2 month strain the liquid through a cheesecloth squeezing the cheesecloth gently to wring out all the liqueur.

It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point where you have strained everything out, you can gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the remaining liquid and juice.

If you still need to strain your liqueur further due to lack of clarity, you can strain it 1 more time through a coffee strainer.

Let age further for another 4 months in a cool dry place.

Congratulations, You Have Completed Making this Awesome Bitter Orange Grappa Liqueur Recipe!

You now need a bottle and a label which are cool enough to compliment your hard work. Honestly, if you put it into a cheap bottle, people will make fun of you. BUT, if it looks good, people will rave about it!
