Holiday Party Host Gift: Christmas Vodka

On the first night of Hanukkah, we went to an awesome Christmas party and I, a total non-drinker, brought my own infused vodka. It made it all the more fun. The party was at a friend’s newly renovated apartment that I couldn’t help but drool at their gorgeous and open outside-the-city-sized kitchen including the farm-style sink and chef’s stovetop.

To celebrate the occasion, we brought our home-infused very merry cranberry lime vodka. It was a big hit (even with the non-drinker ahem,) and the only thing I would have done differently was make much more of it!

Ingredients
  • 1 bag of cranberries
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tbs of sugar
  • Vodka

Instructions
  1. Peel the rind of the lime.
  2. Poke a hole in each cranberry (I used one prong of a fork).
  3. Drop each cranberry into your empty bottle or jar. Drop pieces of lime rind alternatively throughout the layers of cranberry. Fill to the top.
  4. Add the sugar.
  5. Using a funnel fill the bottle with as much vodka as can fit. Seal the top of the bottle/jar. Leave in a dark place for 7 days.

  3. How do you serve it? Just over the rocks? Thanks!

  4. YUM!! It looks like you fill the bottle about half full of cranberries…is that too much?

      I actually filled it to the top with cranberries. Yes, it was a lot but I think it looks the prettiest this way. However, you don’t get all that much vodka in there so I’d make a few bottles for a party next time. The vodka-soaked cranberries are delish too though!

  5. Does it need to be stored in the fridge, or can it stay on the counter? How long does it keep for?
