Cranberry Liqueur


I made Cranberry Liqueur last year, and I can tell you right now, this is a new tradition!

You. Must. Make. This!

 Yes, I did make a double batch, for gifts, you know.....

As a matter of fact, you might want to tuck a couple of bags of cranberries in the freezer, to start a second batch at a later date, because you can enjoy this any time. Of course it is wonderful simply sipped, but don't stop there. Make a delicious Seabreeze, with ruby grapefruit juice, vodka and of course the Cranberry Liqueur.

The strained cranberries are also delicious. They are wonderful stirred into a bundt cake, or muffins or even over vanilla ice cream with a splash of the liqueur, for extra measure.


Cranberry Liqueur
adapted from:  Creative Culinary

1 c water
2 c sugar
2 c (10 oz bag) cranberries
1 orange to make: 1 T grated zest and 3 T juice
2 c vodka (does not have to be top shelf)

Bring water and sugar to a boil, boil 3 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.

Slice/chop berries, grate zest and juice the orange.

Combine syrup, berries, orange zest and juice.

Stir in the vodka.

Store in a large covered jar, stir every day or so. Age for 3 weeks. Then.......

Enjoy!
