How to Make It

Step 1

Grate oranges to equal 2 teaspoons grated rind; set rind aside.

Step 2

Peel oranges. Remove and discard white pith; separate into sections. Place orange sections in a heatproof serving bowl; set aside.

Step 3

Cook sugar, 1/4 cup water, and corn syrup in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring often until sugar dissolves.

Step 4

Increase heat to medium high, and bring mixture to a boil. Boil, without stirring, 8 to 12 minutes or until syrup is a pale golden-amber color. Carefully stir in orange juice, lemon juice, and orange rind. (Mixture will harden.) Cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes or until mixture returns to liquid consistency.

Step 5

Remove from heat, and immediately pour hot syrup over orange sections. Let cool to room temperature. Stir in liqueur. Cover and chill 8 hours. Gently stir oranges before serving.
