For exact amounts needed see the recipe card below

To create a delicious cranberry-infused vodka, you will need:

  • Fresh cranberries: Frozen cranberries also work if you thaw them first.
  • Good-quality bottle of vodka

You’ll also need tools and equipment, including:

  • A large glass jar with a tight-fitting lid
  • A fine mesh strainer
  • A funnel

🥣How to Make Cranberry Infused Vodka

  1. Rinse the cranberries thoroughly under cold water to remove any residue and let them dry on a paper towel.
  2. Put the cranberries in a food processor and pulse a few times to crush them slightly so they release their juice and flavor.
  3. Put the cranberries in the jar.
  4. Using the funnel, carefully pour the vodka into the jar, completely covering the cranberries.
  5. Close the lid tightly and shake the jar to mix everything together.
  6. Place the jar in a cool, dark spot and let it sit for 3-7 days. The longer it sits, the stronger the cranberry flavor will get.

📝FAQ

How long does vodka need to infuse with cranberries?

Let the mixture infuse for about one week for a delicious cranberry-infused vodka. The longer it infuses, the stronger the cranberry flavor will be. However, allowing the vodka to sit longer than four weeks may result in a bitter taste due to the fruit breaking down.

How can I speed up the infusion?

You can use a sous vide to infuse vodka faster. To do this, set the sous vide at 140 degrees F. Place the sealed vodka jar in the water bath, making sure it is completely covered with water. Let it stay in the heated water for 2 hours. Then, take it out, let it cool, and strain it.

What kind of vodka should I use?

A middle-of-the-road, good-quality vodka is best. You don’t need to buy the most expensive vodka, but you don’t want to buy the cheapest stuff.

Can I infuse tequila with cranberries?

Yes, you can definitely infuse tequila with cranberries! The process is similar to infusing vodka. Combine fresh cranberries with your desired amount of tequila in a jar, seal tightly, and let it sit in a cool, dark place for at least a week. Make sure to shake occasionally, and once it’s ready, strain the tequila and discard the fruit.

Can I add sugar to my cranberry vodka infusion?

I prefer to infuse vodka without sugar and instead sweeten my drinks as I make them.
