Fruity Infused Vodka

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
  • Vodka

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
  • Vodka

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.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
