Vin d'Oranges


Among the many flavored wines that Daniel Boulud makes is this festive aperitif. It's also perfect with dessert. The wine must stand for at least 40 days to be at its best, so plan accordingly.

  3. 5 cups white or rosé wine

  7. 1/2 lemon
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water and bring to a boil. Pour the syrup into a large heatproof bowl and let cool. Stir in the wine, kirsch and the vanilla bean and seeds.
