My blogging buddy, Kathy at Moving On To The Past, recently did a couple of posts about making cordials and inspired me to dig out my recipe for Cranberry Cordial and one of the extra bags of cranberries I bought last year just for cordial making. Thanks Kathy!! :)
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 bottle vodka
Combine cranberries, sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook 4 to 5 minutes, until skins start to pop. Cool berries completely and then place them in a half-gallon jar.
Add vodka and stir well. Allow mixture to infuse for at least a week stirring occasionally. I left mine for almost two weeks.
Pour into decorative bottles. Okay, I only had two decorative bottles but you get the idea! :) This makes lovely gifts for the holidays or an extra special after-dinner drink for you on those nippy fall and winter evenings.
