    2 cm cinnamon stick, 2 cloves, 3 cardamom pods, 500 ml vodka
  • Seal and give the ingredients a good swirl. Swirl but don't shake, to avoid any spills.
  • Leave to infuse for 4 days to a week
  • Strain the vodka. Reserve the fruit to add to other recipes and discard the whole spices.
  • Filter the cranberry vodka through a coffee filter (or kitchen paper in a sieve) if you prefer a clear drink. This is optional but does look good if you want to give vodka as a gift.
  • Pour the vodka into an attractive bottle. Add a few whole cranberries and a strip of orange zest, and seal.
