Cranberry-Orange Liqueur



  • 1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries
  • 1 orange
  • 1 fifth vodka
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water


  1. Chop cranberries coarsely. Pare orange with vegetable parer, using only the thin orange zest, not white.
  2. Combine cranberries, orange parings and vodka in a glass or plastic one gallon container. Cover and let steep at room temperature for 3 to 4 weeks. (Stir the fruit from the bottom every so often.)
  3. Strain into a clean container.
  4. Combine sugar and water in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Boil 1 minute. Cool.
  5. Stir sugar syrup into cranberry-orange-vodka liquid. Taste.

For a sweeter liqueur, more sugar syrup may be made and added.
