Oranges in Cointreau Recipe

For this dessert all you need is to add the orange liqueur and some sugar to the vitamin-rich and refreshing orange. You hardly need to use any utensils to prepare it apart from a knife for cleaning the orange and plates to serve it. And the best thing is that success is guaranteed!

Ingredients

  • Oranges – 2 oranges
  • Sugar 3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • Water – 1/4 cup water
  • Cointreau – 3-4 tablespoons Cointreau liqueur
  • Red fruits (optional)

Oranges in Cointreau Preparation

  1. Wash the oranges well, and place them on a cutting board
  2. Peel and de-pith the oranges by first slicing the top and bottom off of the orange. Cut deep enough into the orange to unveil the flesh.
  3. Set the orange on its flat top or bottom and slice off the peel around the orange. Use downward motions to move along the curve of the edge between the orange pith and the flesh leaving small pieces of pith at first
  4. Then you can trim the remaining pith until it is completely peeled, without a trace of skin.
  5. Cut it into not-very-thick slices and place them beautifully on a dessert plate or a platter.
  6. Put the water in a pan together with the sugar over low heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved and then turn off the heat and
  7. Add the Cointreau.
  8. Sprinkle the oranges with the hot liquor syrup ensuring it is evenly distributed. 
  9. Decorate with a few red fruits: raspberries, blueberries
  10. Serve and enjoy.
