1lb fresh cranberries
1 c. sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 oranges (peels only. use a vegetable peeler)
1 lemon (zest and juice)
1 - 750ml bottle of vodka (don't get fancy but don't buy cheap crap. Just make sure you would drink it normally).
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
In a medium sauce pan cook the cranberries, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, spices and vanilla until the berries burst; 5-6min.
Place orange peels in the bottom of an air tight container. Allow the berry mix to cool and pour it into the container over the orange peels. Add the entire bottle of vodka. Seal the container and store in the refrigerator for 1 week. Strain the vodka and pour into clean bottles. (I usually keep the vodka bottle and pour it back in to that)
Makes a great gift in any size bottle.
