Remember the cranberry cheesecake dip I mentioned? Well, I’ve found an even more delicious way to enjoy this scrumptious flavor: Cranberry Orange Infused Vodka! Swoon. I’m not much of a drinker, and especially not much of a vodka drinker, but this stuff? So good.
Cranberry orange is one of my all-time favorite Fall flavors (who am I kidding – any time flavors.) But it always reminds me of this time of year. There’s something about how these two fruits mix with each other to creative such a zesty flavor. And I love doing it in unexpected things. Don’t get me wrong – I love cranberry orange muffins, scones, etc. But I like a bit of change. And this cranberry orange infused vodka is such a fun, flavorful change that is perfect for holiday gatherings.
And bonus? It’s ridiculously easy to make. And it only takes a few days of set it and forget it infusion. Seriously. There’s no reason not to make this stuff.
Which is why I highly recommend making it as a gift for your friends and family this holiday season! Put it in a nice bottle, pair it with some fantastic Stanley gear to make sure they can bring it with them wherever they go and you’re going to be a holiday hero at your next party.
This cranberry orange infused vodka is perfect on it’s own, in a martini, or even substituted in some of your favorite mixed drinks. But if you’re looking to really kick it up a notch, I bet it adds an exciting twist to any boozy baking that you might be doing this year!
And I mentioned it before, but this would be an awesome edible gift this holiday season. Food/drink gifts are great for those that are hard to shop for and they’re some of the most fun green gifts out there! And you’ve got plenty of time to make it. Woohoo!
Mix the cranberries and the oranges together in a canning jar or similar glass container.
Mix in the vodka.
Let sit for 3-5 days out of direct sunlight, shaking every day.
After the 3-5 days, strain it in a cheesecloth. Discard the fruit
Store in a bottle out of direct sunlight.
Make sure the vodka covers the fruit when you combine. If it does not, add in more vodka.
