Orange Digestif

i would try a neutral tasting Grain(not potato) vodka from eastern europe or russia. it will carry your flavors a long way . i make my version of limoncello this way. also i agree that orange peel(because of the oil content ) tastes nothing like orange flower water . also you are definitely playing with fire if you serve guests straight grain alcohol. 151 is the proof which means it is almost 80 percent PURE alcohol, more than double the strength of most premium vodkas.
