1 cup water
4 cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
¼ piece of a whole nutmeg
1 vanilla bean
Peel of half a naval orange

Wrap a nutmeg in a dish towel and whack with the back of a knife and pick out a piece about a quarter the size of the whole nutmeg and place in the pan.
Add the vanilla bean and the orange peel and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat and spoon off any foam then bring to a boil again, cover and simmer on low for 30 minutes.
Let sit for 30 minutes off heat.
Remove lid, bring back to a boil and add vodka off heat.
Stir and pour through a coffee filter or cheese cloth into a clean sterilized bottle and let cool. Discard solids.
