Flavoured with sweet-tart cranberries and zesty orange, this festive ruby liqueur is the perfect gift for holiday hosts. While delicious on its own, a splash of sparkling water, or Prosecco and a twist of orange peel, turns it into a sophisticated cocktail.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups frozen whole cranberries
  • 3 strips orange zest
  • 1 bottle vodka

Method

In saucepan, cook sugar with 2 cups water over medium heat, stirring, until dissolved. Add cranberries and orange zest; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Let cool completely.

Scrape mixture into food processor; pulse 3 to 4 times, until cranberries are broken into pieces.

Transfer to 5-cup (1.25 L) sterilized bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid. Add vodka; seal tightly and shake to combine. Refrigerate for 3 weeks, shaking jar periodically.

Strain through paper coffee filter–lined strainer into bowl, gently pressing on solids; discard solids. Using funnel, pour liquid into decorative 4-cup (1 L) bottle. Store in refrigerator for up to 3 months.
