Cranberry Liqueur

Time: 288 hrs 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 lb cranberries
  • 4 cups superfine sugar, divided
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cups 80 proof vodka

Directions

  • 1 Combine cranberries with 2 cups sugar.
  • 2 Add water and boil 4-5 minutes until skins start to pop.
  • 3 Remove from heat and cool.
  • 4 Put in a mixing jar, add vodka and shake vigorously.
  • 5 Cover and leave to infuse at least 7 days, shaking or stirring occasionally.
  • 6 Pour thru a coarse strainer and discard berries.
  • 7 Let rest 3-4 days.
  • 8 Without shaking the jar, decant only the clear liquor into another jar, leaving white residue in the original jar.
  • 9 The white residue can be put thru a paper strainer (I use an unbleached coffee filter) until liquid is clear; add the strained liquor to the already decanted liqueur.
  • 10 Combine liqueur with 2 more cups of sugar and shake vigorously until sugar is absorbed.
  • 11 Let clear overnight and bottle.
