    echo echo's Note:

    I always associate autumn with cranberries. Here is an elegant liqueur that's really easy to make (and a treat to receive as a Christmas or hostess gift). If giving as a gift, be sure to allow enough time (in days) for the fruit to fully infuse the liquor. Cooking time is actually infusion time. UPDATE: After the liqueur is made, try using it to make Rita L's cocktail A Jolly Christmas Special Cosmo or Red Hot Lovers Cosmo (A Jolly Christmas Special Cosmo or Red Hot Lovers Cosmo), or if you give the liqueur as a gift, you might want to give the recipient a copy of Rita's recipe to go with it!)

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    quart

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

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

      I made a batch of this delecious drink, and it's wonderfully simple and sooooo good. I used 4 layers of cheesecloth for straining the berries from the liquid, and found there was ablsolutely no residue, so I could skip No's 8 and 9 in the recipe. I tied up the cheesecloth and hung it from a hook to drip overnight. I got 2 1/2 liqueur bottles from it. I did make cranberry liqueur for about 4 years now, (using 4 different recipes,) and this is the simplest by far. I found other years that letting it set for about a month in a cold room or refrigerator improves it's taste. Yum!!!

      I made this so I could try Rita's A Jolly Christmas Special Cosmo so I cut the recipe down to 1/4 as I wanted to try a smaller portion before committing that much vodka.. For us, the final liqueur is a bit cough syrupy, but I would make it again stopping at step 8 as we loved the cranberry infused vodka. At steps 8/9 I didn't have any white residue so I just strained it again through a very fine mesh sieve.

      This is not my final review. I`m up to #4. Have to wait a week to taste and finish the directions. I just wanted to post the picture up to this point. I posted Dec 2, 2004 Sorry I took so long! The Holidays has me spinning! OK maybe it`s this delish drink! Sweet but very good. Great to make cosmos with. It`s a vibrant red. Wonderful for Christmas. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. I added one of my cake because I just couldn`t discard the cranberries so I made my Cranberry Ripple Cake with them. Posted Dec 23, 2004.
