This is an easy recipe I found earlier last month. I got it from Martha Stewart, and it came out so yummy, and was so simple to do- I thought I’d pass it on!
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 ecomomical 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!
~Cranberry & Orange Infused Vodka~ Makes 4 cups
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 piece fresh orange peel (2-by-1-inch)
- 3 cups vodka
In a small saucepan, heat cranberries, sugar, and water until the sugar dissolves, the liquid begins to turn a light-pink color, and the cranberries just begin to pop. Pour the cranberries and the liquid into a large glass jar; stir in peel and vodka. Cover, and let stand at room temperature at least 3 days or up to one month. Strain before serving.
