Seville Orange Gin

Newsflash, Seville oranges aren't just for marmalade (and, friendly reminder, they're most certainly not for eating straight from the fruit bowl). They'll make a stonking good gin, though. 


You'll need
4 Seville oranges • 150g caster sugar • 1 ltr gin

The steps by steps
Finely pare the zest from 4 Seville oranges (avoiding the pith) and pop in a clean jar with 150g caster sugar. Squeeze in the juice from 1 orange and stir in 1 ltr gin. Seal, store the jar in a dark place and give it a shake every day for two weeks. It'll be ready to drink – just strain the gin into a sterilised bottle and store in your drinks cupboard. Serve in a tall glass with tonic water, plenty of ice and a wedge of orange.
