Cranberry Vodka

I seem to be on an alcohol making kick this season. First Irish cream, now cranberry infused vodka... I'm thinking jalapeno tequila is next.

 What you need:
  • 1 bag fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 split vanilla bean
  • vodka
What you do:
Mix first three ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat, stir well. Continue to stir simmering mixture until the berries burst, about 5 minutes.

Divide half of the berry mixture between two large mason jars (800 ml.).

Pour enough vodka in the jars to cover the cranberries. Allow the jars to hangout/party/mingle in your fridge for 1 week.

Strain out the cranberries and store cranberry vodka in the refrigerator. Save the cranberry mash to garnish drinks... or just eat it (but beware it's completely saturated with alcohol).

Here's a great recipe for madras using cranberry vodka.
  • 1 1/2 ounces cranberry vodka
  • 1/2 ounce cranberry juice
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • 1 cherry
Fill a glass with ice. Add ingredients and stir. Garnish with a few cranberries or cherries.
