  • 2 ounces ginger root
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 orange zested
  • 1 ½ cups brandy


  • Peel the ginger (use a spoon - it's so easy) and cut into thin slices. Slice the vanilla bean in half lengthwise.
  • Add the ginger, vanilla bean, sugar and water to a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes. Let the syrup cool.
  • In a sealable jar, add the ginger syrup mixture, orange zest and brandy. Shake. 
  • Let the mixture steep for one day, then remove the vanilla bean. Let it steep for another day. Strain through a strainer lined with a coffee filter. Pour the strained liqueur into a bottle and cap. Let it sit for one more day for the flavors to mellow even more.
