Before I buy my fresh bag of cranberries this year I needed to use up the two cups of frozen cranberries left over from last year. I have wanted to make cranberry vodka for a long time. It is ridiculously easy and fun to make. Martinis are also all the rage and I thought I could use it at Christmas time. Here is the recipe.
- One 750 ml. vodka ( good quality)
- 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
- Rind from 1 large orange
- 1 cup super fine sugar
Before the week was up I decided to opened the jar and squish some of the cranberries against the side of the jar with a large wooden spoon. Squishing the cranberries really deepen the color of the vodka. Enjoy!
