Cran­berry & lime vodka

The Simple Things - - LIVING -

Time to pre­pare: 10 mins, plus daily turn­ing for a week Leave to in­fuse: at least a month

Peel of one un­waxed lime 2 tbsp of sugar 50g dried cran­ber­ries 1 cin­na­mon stick 450ml good qual­ity vodka*

1 Have a large, clean stor­age jar with a tight-seal lid ready. Add the lime, sugar, cran­ber­ries and cin­na­mon stick to the bot­tom of the jar.

2 Add the vodka, stir to sub­merge and mix the in­gre­di­ents. Seal the lid and store the jar in a cool, dark place.

3 For the first week, swirl or turn the jar gen­tly to help the sugar dis­solve.

4 Af­ter a month – taste; if happy, strain the in­gre­di­ents from the vodka, wash the jar and re­turn vodka to it or de­cant into clean bot­tles to give as gifts. For a stronger flavour, con­tinue to in­fuse and test every few days.
