DIY Cranberry Liqueur

self love handbook for plus size brides, self love for plus size brides

2 cups cranberries (fresh or frozen)
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups vodka
1 orange (zest only)

Boil the cranberries, sugar and water until the cranberries start to burst and get soft (about 7 minutes). Then blend or puree this syrupy mixture and transfer it to a sealable glass jar. Add the vodka and orange zest, then seal and shake the jar. Refrigerate for at a minimum of 4 days and up to 3 weeks (taste along the way to see when your desired flavor is achieved). Once you’re happy with the flavor level, line a fine-mesh strainer with cheesecloth and strain out the solids. (You can keep the strained out fruit as a cranberry relish or dessert topping.) Store the liqueur in a glass container in the refrigerator. It should keep for about 2 months.
