Cranberry Infused Vodka

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh cranberries
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle vodka

Prep Time:

5 minutes

Cook Time:

2 weeks

Serves:

25

A cranberry-infused libation that imparts a striking deep red color and fresh, vibrant cranberry to any seasonal cocktail.

Why Try? When packaged in a decorative bottle this homemade concoction is an excellent host/hostess gift or could be used for one’s own holiday entertaining. There are many flavored vodkas on the market but none with the fresh and crisp, tangy flavor of this one.

Foodie Byte: Try using it to create your own signature vodka cocktail or serve well chilled in a shot glass rimmed with Vanilla Infused Sugar. Be sure to begin this recipe 2 weeks ahead of serving. It takes about that much time for the flavor to become completely infused.

Preparation

  1. Place cranberries in bowl of food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  2. Combine vodka and cranberries. Cover and let stand for 2 weeks. Strain with fine mesh sieve into a bowl; discard solids.
  3. Transfer to sterilized bottles that seal airtight; refrigerate.
