      Correction - 1/2tsp essential orange oil is more like 14 drops not 7.
      One needs to experiment to get the appropriate concentration.

      Orange Bitters is a common ingredient in classic cocktails, but can
      be hard to find. Here is a recipe to make your own:
      225g (1/2lb) dried bitter orange peel (Seville orange)
      1pinch cardamon
      1pinch caraway
      1pinch coriander seeds
      500ml (2cups) alcohol
      4tbsp caramel coloring (burnt sugar)
      Chop the orange peel finely, add the seeds and pour on alcohol.
      Let it stand for 2 weeks, agitating daily. Pour off alcohol through a
      cloth and seal again. Take seeds, put in a saucepan, crush, cover
      with water and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour into another jar, cover and
      let stand for 2 days. Strain and add to alcohol. Add caramel
      coloring, filter and let it rest until it settles perfectly clear.
