Ingredients

  • 2 (12 ounce) packages fresh cranberries

  • 2 ½ cups vodka

  • 2 ½ cups simple syrup

  • ¾ lemon, peeled

  • ¾ orange, peeled

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • teaspoon ground allspice

Directions

  1. Pulse cranberries in a food processor just until roughly chopped; transfer to a clean glass container. Add vodka, simple syrup, lemon peel, orange peel, cinnamon stick, and allspice to cranberries; stir until well mixed. Seal container with a lid and store in a cool dark area, 3 to 5 days, stirring several times a day. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a glass bottle and refrigerate.

Cook's Note:

Cheap vodka creates a biting flavor that is hard to get rid of, stick with mid-range vodka like Smirnoff(R).

If your glass container is new, clean multiple times until no smell is detected. Any smell will infuse itself into your liqueur.
