Cranberry-Lime Vodka

This was a quick idea for a unique gift….


…especially while its easy to find fresh cranberries...


…and it tastes great with lemon-lime soda, orange juice or pineapple juice!


I could resist making my own labels for each bottle!


Cranberry-Lime Vodka

  • 3 ½ cups fresh cranberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 cups vodka
  • Strips of lime zest from 1 lime
1. Heat 3 cups of the cranberries, the sugar, and the lime juice in a medium saucepan over medium heat until boiling. Reduce heat to low and simmer until most of the cranberries pop, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely.
2. Add the strips of lime zest to a jar with a tight-fitting lid, then pour in the vodka. Spoon the cooled cranberry mixture into the jar. Put the lid on the jar and let the mixture macerate in the refrigerator at least one day or up to a week.
3. When you’re ready to package it, strain vodka througha sieve into bottles with tight-fitting lids. Add the remaining ½ cup of fresh cranberries.  Makes 3 cups
