Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cranberry Syrup Base.
  2. Combine the cranberries, sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Cool.
  3. When cool, place mixture in a blender and blend for 2 minutes.
  4. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove all of the seeds and skin pieces.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients: lemon juice, lime juice, 2 dashes bitters, Limoncello liquor and the cranberry base is complete. Makes approximately 5 cups.
  6. Chill completely until ready to use.
  7. For each Cranberry-Limoncello Martini.
  8. In a shaker filled half way with ice cubes:.
  9. Add 2 - 2 1/2 ounces cranberry syrup base. NOTE: may use less per glass as it is a bit thick w/ this amount. I have been experimenting and think 2 oz may be best for starters. Start w/ less and add more if desired or add some pomegranate juice to each cocktail.
  10. Next, add 1 1/2 ounces citrus flavored vodka.
  11. Shake 50-100 times and pour into martini glass. If you shake 100x, you will get little crystals of ice in your pour.
  12. Pour into martini glass. Garnish with a lime slice. YUM!
  13. PITCHER: Measure 2 cups vodka, entire recipe of base> approx 5 cups of base. To thin add 1 cup pomegranate juice. Stir. Add to shaker full of ice and pour into individual martini glasses.
