Homemade Grand Marnier

I need information on how to make homemade Grand Marnier. I had one before, using vanilla beans, lemons, oranges, 100 proof vodka and sugar. But I don't remember the amounts. Can you help?

Grand Marnier Recipe:

  • 4 medium Oranges
  • 1 Vanilla bean
  • 2 1/2 cups Vodka
  • 1 cup Brandy
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

    Look for firm, heavy oranges which indicates lots of juice, and smooth skinned ones free from soft spots and mold.
    Wash and peel oranges making sure to scrape ALL white rind from the peels to avoid bitter flavor. Slice in strips and add to liquor and vanilla bean. Steep 2-3 weeks, strain and filter.

    Boil together water and sugar for about 5 minutes at a full boil and be sure the sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool.
    Add sugar syrup to orange liquor and let age for 4 weeks. (04/17/2008)

    3. Cover jar and shake until the sugar is dissolved.

    4. Store the jar at room temp for at least 2 wks, then strain the orange slices and pulp from the liquid.
