      'Manderine Napoleon' which was once known as 'Manderine Imperiale' is
      a cognac based liqueur 38%abv. Mandarin (tangerine) skins are soaked
      in raw brandy and redistilled, sweetened and colored.

      Here is a recipe for a 'Mandarin Liqueur' from a French site,
      http://jg.graessel.free.fr/Liqueur/Manderine.htm
      Recipes also for Citron (lemon), Citron Vert (limes), Orange, Agrume
      (mixed citrus), Cointreau (made by suspending an orange in a jar of
      neutral alcohol).

      Mandarin Liqueur
      8 mandarins
      1 litre white rum
      250 g sugar (11/4 cups)
      125 ml water (/2 cup) to make a sugar syrup

      Wash mandarins and peel zest. Juice the mandarins. Combine juice,
      zest and rum. Steep/macerate for 4 weeks. Filter. Add sugar syrup.
      Bottle and age for 2 weeks.

      Here is a recipe for 'Cumquats in Brandy' which could be adapted for
      firm mandarins.

      Cumquats in Brandy
      1 kg cumquats
      440 g sugar (2 cups)
      750 ml brandy (3 cups)

      Prick cumquats with a fine skewer. Layer cumquats and sugar in glass
      jar, pour brandy to cover fruit and seal jar. Turn jar upside down
      once a week until sugar is dissolved.
