Festive Spiced Cranberry & Orange Vodka
My festive cranberry Christmas vodka makes the perfect warming drink for the winter holidays. Beautifully balanced with tart fruit, sugar and aromatic spices, it's a great way to impress your guests on cosy nights in.
Servings: 30 25 ml shots
- 500 ml vodka
- 350 g cranberry sauce
- 2 cm cinnamon stick
- 2 cloves
- 3 cardamom pods
- 1 or 2 segments of a star anise - optional
To serve (optional)
- 1 strip orange
- 10 cranberries
Put the cranberry sauce into a sealable wide-necked jar large enough to take all the ingredients.
350 g cranberry sauce
Add the spices and vodka.
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.
1 strip orange, 10 cranberries
