Lingonberry Punch


The tiny, tart fruit known as lingonberries are widely available in Scandinavia, and are also grown in small amounts in the United States. Check your local farmers' markets. Since they are part of the cranberry family, you can also make this refreshing drink with frozen cranberries and their juice.


  • 2 cups fresh lingonberries

  • 1 liter good-quality vodka, chilled

  • 2 gallons lingonberry juice, chilled


  1. Place lingonberries in a resealable plastic storage bag, and place in the freezer until they are completely frozen and solid, at least 2 hours.

  2. Combine vodka and lingonberry juice in a large punch bowl or divide among several large pitchers; add frozen berries. Serve immediately.
