  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 piece fresh orange peel (2-by-1-inch)
  • 3 cups vodka


  1. 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. Strain before serving.
