Edible Christmas Gifts (5) ~ Cranberry Vodka


It takes two weeks to make so you need to get started pretty soon to have this ready for Crimbo.


Ingredients:
1 litre Vodka
250g Fresh Cranberries
175g Caster Sugar

Method: (makes 2 50cl bottles)
Step 1: Sterilise a suitably large bottle (see picture at top)
Step 2: Prick the cranberries with a fork and place in bottle, add voddy and sugar
Step 3: Leave for two weeks shaking every day
Step 4: Strain and decant into smaller 50cl bottles (sterilised) to give away as presents - I may well have to keep a bottle...for emergencies

  2. This would be a very festive liqueur. You can even make one out of leftover lemon peels like Aglaia taught me:D

  10. That looks great! It's not likely to explode either, which is in it's favour, unlike some other homemade booze!

  17. Does it keep?
    I made a similar drink last year with raspberries and after a couple of weeks it tasted like soap - such a shame/waste!
