In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, and cinnamon.
Pour olive oil over mixture, stirring until well combined.
Add orange zest and liqueur, mixing until dough comes together. This may require a little water, so add a teaspoon at a time if necessary.
Lightly flour a clean work surface. Divide dough in two. Form one half of dough into a 1 inch log.
