Vin de Orange is a fortified wine infusion that takes the whole fruit, peel and all, and turns it into boozy liquid sunshine. French Vin de Orange can be found in historical documents as far back as 15th century. Make this during the deep winter months, right around the holidays, as oranges are at their peak. Mildly sweet, bitter, fruity, fragrant and zingy all a once, this drink is spectacular served over ice or as a milder substitute for Campari in a classic Negroni.
