Recipe by echo echo
READY IN: 288hrs 20mins
YIELD: 1 quart




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