French Orange Rum Liqueur Recipe D.I.Y.

Hey Guys and Gals looking for a French Orange Rum Liqueur?

You now have no reason to look any further, you have just found what you are looking for! This is a recipe for the most awesome tasting French Orange Rum Liqueur in the world.


  • 2 1/2 cups of dark rum (a little less than 3 cups)
  • 3 cups of dry white wine
  • 1 1/4 cups of (10 ozs) golden caster sugar or white sugar
  • 8 oranges, unwaxed


Clean and then peel large strips of zest (the peel) from the oranges with a vegetable peeler. Place the orange zest into your aging container. Obviously we recommend you use organic oranges.

Add sugar (caster sugar has a buttery taste), rum and wine store in a cool, dark place.

Aging and Straining Your French Orange Liqueur

Let liqueur age for 6 weeks in a cool dark place.

While the liqueur is aging, give the jar a good shake once or twice a week to agitate and enhance the infusion.

After 6 weeks of infusing, it’s time to strain your liqueur.

Carefully strain the liquid through several layers of cheesecloth. It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point of straining out the pulp and rind, gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice (the fourth photo).

After straining, you can discard all of the rind, pulp and any spice.

Otherwise you can go straight to bottling.

Congratulations, You Have Completed Making this Awesome French Orange Rum 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!
