It’s always useful to have a stock of ideas for home made birthday or Christmas presents and this vodka could be made all year round. Although this recipe uses cranberries to be festive, you could choose blackberries or raspberries or all sorts of berries instead!
- 70cl bottle of vodka
- 300g of cranberries
- Peel from one orange
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 large sterilised jars
To start with, prick all the cranberries with a darning needle or any sharp pokey tool you have. Now divide all the solid ingredients between the two jars and pour half the bottle of vodka into each jar.
Now put the jars somewhere safe and leave for about three weeks, shaking them each day.
Then strain the liquid out of the jars into a jug and bottle up into suitable gift containers and label and it looks lovely. Easy!
