Homemade Cranberry Liqueur

East Bay Adam

"This delicious treat can be enjoyed on its own (as a post-Thanksgiving sipper) or mixed with sparkling wine to create a cranberry cordial (a festive way to kick off the holidays). Either way, it's really easy to make! Will last up to 2 months."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

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

I'm happy to be the first to review this gem. Wasn't sure so I scaled it down 1/4 which was enough to steep in a pint mason jar and yielded about 8 oz. I did use frozen cranberries, accidentally...

Made this for a couple holiday parties and everybody loved it! Very easy to make, although straining the cranberries got a little messy. :)

Made this according to the recipe. Very good flavor. Mixed it with ginger ale and garnished with a couple frozen cranberries. Also good straight up over ice. Nice cocktail for the holidays.
