Have you tried this? Made it, tasted it? What did you think?
16 oz. cranberries
1/2 peel lemon, scraped
1/4 peel orange, scraped
1.5 c vodka (I used white brandy)
1.5 c sugar syrup (simple syrup)
Steep 4 weeks or until as smooth as you wish.
If you’ve never made a cordial, it’s pretty simple. Put all the ingredients in a mason jar with a good tight lid, and pour the liquid over it. Put it in a dark place. Shake daily for about a week, weekly for about another month, and then check on it periodically. Keep it in the dark. Test to see if it’s smooth. I am told running inexpensive liquor through a Brita filter about eight times speeds that up remarkably.
