Makes 2 cocktails."

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (12-ounce) package fresh cranberries

Preparation

Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan; cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and cool completely.

Place cranberries in a food processor; process 2 minutes or until finely chopped. Combine sugar mixture and cranberries in a large bowl; stir in vodka.
