  • 12 oz fresh cranberries reserve a 1/3 cup for garnish
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 750 ml bottle orange flavored vodka
  • Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water


  1. Begin by making simple syrup.
  2. Mix 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for about a minute until all the sugar is dissolved.
