Uses for Cranberry Vodka

Last year during the holiday season I bought a beautiful bottle of Cranberry Vodka at Trader Joe's. I seldom drink, and I'll admit I bought it mostly for the bottle itself. However, I would like some recipes to use it -- drinks, desserts, whatever. Any suggestions?

  1. Pomm Martini

    1 oz cranberry vodka
    1/2 oz Cointreau® orange liqueur
    3 oz pomegranate juice

    Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker 1/4 filled with chopped ice. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Serve with a squeeze of lemon or float a toothpick of frozen purple grapes.

        Mix two parts cranberry vodka to one part triple sec combined with one part cranberry juice and the juice of half a lime. Garnish with lime wedge.

      2. I often make boozy berries - soaking berries (I usually use a box of thawed frozen mixed berries from the supermarket, and then add in punnet of quartered strawberries) in an equal parts mixture of whatever berry/cherry/cranberry flavoured vodka I have around the place and frangelico. Serve at room temp with vanilla icecream, or whipped cream with a bit of vanilla bean paste mixed in. This is also a great accompaniment to a rich chocolate cake.

          'punnet'-A small light basket used as a measure for fruits.

        2. They all sound delicious! Thank you!

          1. You could pour them over some gummi bears and let them soak overnight and have boozy holiday treats..
