Cranberry Cordial

My cranberry cordial is an alcoholic one so don’t expect the raspberry cordial of Anne of Green Gables or you might find yourself as tipsy as Anne after imbibing Marilla’s wine!

The flavor of this reminds me somewhat of sipping an old-fashioned. It ages very well and improves as it is stored. If you can make it last. Perhaps several batches are in order?

You can always give away some as Christmas gifts.

You can see the chopped cranberries have to sit in the vodka much the same way you would put fruits in vinegar to make fruit vinegars. These are best stored in a dark place. I like using a cupboard, in the back where they rest undisturbed.
