Cranberry or Cherry Liqueur
1 pound (4 1/2 cups) dried cranberries or dried sweet cherries.
Dried cranberries may contain a tiny amount of
oil; use paper towels to gently blot off any oily film floating on
the strained liqueur.
1. In a 3- to 4-quart pan,
combine vodka and sugar. Stir often over medium heat until mixture
reaches 125 [degrees] to 130 [degrees] (hot to touch), about 5
minutes. Watch carefully; if overheated, fumes may ignite.
2. Place cranberries or cherries in a widemouth glass jar (at least
2 qt.). Pour in hot vodka mixture. Seal airtight. (If seal is rubber
or synthetic rubber, cover glass top with plastic wrap to protect
seal; alcohol can soften it.) Let stand at least 1 week or up to 2
3. Line a strainer with 4 layers of damp cheesecloth and set over
an 8-cup glass measure or bowl with a pour spout. Pour liqueur and
fruit, a portion at a time, through cloth. When fruit is no longer
dripping, save for other uses; wrap airtight and refrigerate up to 3
4. Pour liqueur into small bottles; seal airtight (if seals are
rubber or synthetic rubber, see step 2). Serve liqueur, or store in
a cool, dark place up to I year.
