Follow these Steps to make the Orange Syrup
The preparation of the orange syrup is very simple and the first step you must do is prepare a kind of syrup mixing the sugar and the water. Pour the water into a saucepan, add the sugar, and put it on the fire so that the sugar dissolves at a medium temperature. It is very important that you stir the mixture so that it begins to thicken and does not reach the point of caramelizing. This step can take approximately 15 minutes.
While the syrup is cooking, wash three of the oranges that you are going to use and grate the skin of them to add them later and add a more intense flavor and aroma to the syrup. Once you have the orange zest ready, with the help of a manual or electric juicer, extract the juice from the oranges and reserve.
At the precise moment that the mixture of water and sugar begins to boil, then you must add the orange zest, remove all the ingredients, and let the syrup cook for about 5 more minutes.
After these 5 minutes, remove the saucepan from the heat, add the orange juice to the mixture and stir for a few seconds. In order for the orange syrup to acquire the proper consistency, it is essential to leave the mixture of ingredients to marinate for about 24 hours and, when that day has passed, then you can filter it with a cloth or fine mesh strainer to remove all the pulp remains and remaining orange zest.5
