I discovered this recipe via a “Homemade Christmas Gifts” collection on Pinterest. I know some of my foodie friends will really enjoy this gift. The green and red of the lime and cranberries are so festive, especially with the snowy white sugar sprinkled throughout.
Cranberry-Lime Infused Vodka (thanks to fancy napkin)
- 2 16 oz glass bottles with toppers (mine have corks)
- 1 bag fresh cranberries
- 2 limes, peeled with as little pith as possible
- 2 tbsp sugar
Using a knife, pierce each cranberry so the vodka can seep into the berries. Alternately fill each bottle with the cranberries and the lime peels. When bottle is full of berries, add sugar. Pour vodka into the bottle until full. Allow to sit and mature for 2 weeks to a month. Be sure to shake the bottles every couple of days to help the flavors meld.
You can use this vodka for these crantinis or any other cranberry cocktail.

You’ll have to let us know how it tastes after it’s designated wait-time. Looks fabulous.
I will, promise.
I don’t drink, but it certainly does make a festive table decoration! You will let us know if it tastes as nice as it looks, won’t you? 😉
Absolutely. If I forget, remind me…. But I doubt I will because I am so excited to try it!

Does it have to be refrigerated while waiting for it to mature? Or does it have to be refrigerated after it is ready? or both?
It does need to be refrigerated for approx. 2 wks.

Do you think any other berries would work with this concept?
Yes but they would not hold up as well structurally. That means you might have to strain it if you dont want it chunky!
