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