Peel and section the oranges into a serving bowl.
In another, smaller bowl, mix together the orange marmalade and liqueur to make a sauce.
If necessary, add the juice from a few orange sections to the marmalade to reach a pourable consistency.
Stir the sauce into the oranges.
Refrigerate at least 20 minutes, and serve chilled.
TO SECTION AN ORANGE QUICKLY: Cutbothofthe ends from the orange and place it cut side down on a cutting board.
Slice down the sides of the orange with wide strokes, just deep enough to remove the peel and all of the white pith.
Hold the peeled orange over the serving bowl to catch any dripping juice, and with a paring knife, carefully cut between the membrane and one side of each orange section and back out the other side to release it from the membrane.
This can be done with one smooth in-and-out motion.
When all of the sections are removed, squeeze any remaining juice from the membrane into the bowl.
