My husband and I really enjoyed using the fruit-infused vodka in cranberry juice, and as an ingredient in cosmos! They would also make fantastic, and economical gifts for friends or family- I put some in mason jars for that purpose.

Unfortunately, some of my friends, and family will never get this from me! Some of you live too far away! And I think the U.S. Postal service forbids sending items like this in the mail because… well, they would be quite flammable. LOL.

Anyway, the recipe is below for anyone looking for a tasty weekend project! Also, I found the older the mixture was, the stronger and more delicious the fruit taste was!
