Fresh Cranberry Vodka Cocktail

When you're through making that fresh cranberry sauce for the fall and winter holidays, don't throw out the leftover ingredients - use them to make a bog-to-table vodka cranberry. Once you have the cranberries prepared, mixing the drink is as easy as, well, adding vodka. Check out the recipe here and serve it as a seasonal before-dinner drink.

Ingredients

1
cup cranberries
1/2
cup water
1/4
cup sugar
2
ounces vodka
4
ounces seltzer water
1
lime

Directions

  • 1 Cranberries are too tart to just muddle into your drink - you'll need to cook them down with some sugar to make sure they are properly sweetened for your drink. Add enough cranberries to a saucepan to cover the bottom, then add half a cup of water and a quarter cup of sugar (if you like sweet drinks, feel free to add more). Cook and stir the mixture over moderate heat for 5 minute or until all the cranberries have burst. This cranberry mixture will be enough for 5-6 drinks.
  • 2 Once mixture has cooled, add 2-3 spoonfuls of cranberries to your glass.
  • 3 Using a muddler or wooden spoon, press down on the cranberries to release leftover juice and break down any large bits of fruit.
  • 4 Add two ounces of vodka to your cranberry mixture.
  • 5 Fill glass three quarters of the way with seltzer and add a few ice cubes.
  • 6 Stir. Garnish with a fresh lime wedge and two fresh cranberries on a toothpick. Enjoy.
