How to Make Orange Extract

Use this simple recipe to whip up a batch of homemade orange extract for yourself, or to give as a gift.


  • 1 organic orange
  • 1 cup vodka


Zest orange. Try not to include the pith.

Place zest in a jar, and cover with vodka. Make sure zest is completely submerged.

Screw the lid on your jar, and place it in a cool, dark spot for at least two weeks (longer is better, and will result in a stronger flavor).

Strain out zest, and transfer your finished orange extract to a brown glass jar.


  • To make non-alcoholic extract, replace the vodka with three parts food-grade liquid glycerin and one part water.
