Cranberry Vodka

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) water
  • 3 cups (315 g) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 1/2 cups (315 g) sugar
  • 3 cups (750 ml) vodka

Preparation

  1. In a saucepan, bring the water, cranberries and sugar to a boil. Simmer for 3 minutes or until the cranberries start to burst. Let cool. Transfer to an 8-cup (2 litre) glass jar. Refrigerate until completely chilled. Add the vodka and seal tightly. Refrigerate for about 7 days.
  2. Line a sieve with cheesecloth and strain the vodka. Reserve the cranberries for garnishing cocktails. Transfer the cranberry vodka to an airtight bottle. Store in the freezer.
  3. Serve over ice or in a Pink Martini.

Note

Must be made at least one week in advance as it needs to macerate for about 7 days.
