- 250g fresh or frozen cranberries
- Pared zest of 2 oranges
- 175-200g caster sugar, to taste
- 1 litre unbranded vodka
- Put the cranberries into a shallow dish and stab them with a fork, but don’t reduce to a mush. Put them into 2 sterilised, wide-necked jars with lids, with the strips of orange zest and the sugar. Pour over the vodka, seal and leave somewhere dark for 2 weeks, shaking the jar now and then (about once a week), until the sugar has dissolved.
- Strain the liquid through a muslin- lined sieve into a jug, decant into sterilised bottles, seal and label.
