Why we love it
Arancino is an Italian liqueur similar to Limoncello, but made with oranges instead of lemons, and the oranges for Morelli come from Sicily. As per the Limoncello, the ingredients used are alcohol, oranges and cane sugar, no preservatives or additives, and using a recipe that has been handed down from generation to generation.
Morelli was possibly the first to produce the Arancino in Italy and in fact is Arancino is an award winning drink, it has won the World Spirit Competition in the category "liqueur" in several years.
The Arancino is made leaving the zest of Sicilian oranges to macerate in pure alcohol for several days until the color and flavour are released, water and cane sugar are then added and the Arancino is ready to be enjoyed chilled, it can be drunk on his own as a digestive, used it in the preparation of cocktails or in cooking recipes, especially desserts such Tiramisu or cakes with fruit.
