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.

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


  1. Wow, I'd want a gift like that!

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

  3. Beth what a brilliant idea!! This liqueur makes a great gift and so very festive. Thanks for sharing this :)

  5. I like the sound of this! It will make a brilliant present.

  6. PS There is a little something for you over at my blog. Hold it dear to your heart or pass it along whichever you wish:D

  7. What a great idea! In nice bottles this would make a great gift

  8. What a fantastic idea! I love vodka and cranberry juice so this is my kind of vodka.

  9. How fun! Do you have to refrigerate it?

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

  11. Cheers, make mine a large one. ;-)
    Looks great, Beth.

  12. I love Vodka and Cranberry and this is a great gift!

  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!

  18. Oh wow, that sounds gorgeous! Will definitely be making some for Christmas!

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
