I thought I would give a couple of fruity vodkas a try. Flavored vodkas seem to be in right now and I thought some fresh fruit would compliment it nicely. I can’t wait to see how the flavors come out; I did three different flavors; here are two of them.
Cranberry Lemon Vodka
- 1/2 cup fresh cranberries cut in half
- zest of one lemon and a couple of slices
- lemon balm leaves
- 2 Tbs sugar
In jar combine cranberries, lemon, sugar, and lemon balm leaves. Cover with vodka and set aside for 2 – 4 weeks; shaking occasionally.
Orange Cranberry Vodka
- 1/4 cup cranberries cut in half
- zest of one orange
- 3 – 4 orange slices
- juice of half an orange
- 1 – 2 Tbs sugar
Combine all ingredients in canning jar and set aside for 2 – 4 weeks. This one I actually used a bit of; the orange flavor really came through. I combined mine with cran-grape juice for a very tasty drink.
