Rapid Orange Bitter

Fast & easy flavouring: homemade orange-flavoured vodka.

  • 350 mlVodka
  • 25 gfresh orange peel (no pith, orange only)
  • 25 gdried orange peel (Sevilles)
  • 25 gdried lemon peel
  • 25 gdried grapefruit peel
  • 0.2 gwhole cloves
  • 2.5 ggreen cardamom seeds removed from pod
  • 2 gcaraway seeds
  • 2.5 gquassia bark
  • 5 gdried gentian root


Put the vodka and the orange peel aside.

Reduce the remaining ingredients to the size of whole peppercorns in a spice mill. Put the spice mixture, vodka and fresh orange peel into a 0.5 L iSi Gourmet Whip. Attach the Rapid Infusion accessories to the iSi Gourmet Whip as per instructions.

Screw on 1 iSi Cream Charger and shake. Then place the iSi Whipper in hot water (max. 75 °C) for 20 minutes. Immediately cool in ice water for 5 minutes - then quickly vent the iSi Whipper by pressing the lever.

Unscrew the device head from the iSi stainless steel bottle and remove the sieve and the sieve seal. Empty the infused liquid into a glass through the iSi Funnel & Sieve.

The rinds of the fruit have absorbed almost all of the liquid: therefore put these into a straining bag and squeeze it out.

iSi tip

If you try to recover more liquid, the product becomes more bitter and has less flavour.
