1 cup fresh cranberries
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 piece fresh lemon or orange peel (or both!)
1 750ml bottle nice Vodka like Tito’s
In a small saucepan, heat cranberries, sugar, and water until the sugar dissolves, the liquid begins to turn a light-pink color, and the cranberries just begin to pop.
Pour the cranberries and the liquid into a large glass jar; stir in peel and vodka.
Cover, and let stand at room temperature at least 3 days or up to one month.
The longer it sits, the better. Strain through cheesecloth. Enjoy!
