Great using Cranberries .. even better with Raspberries (which don't need to be pricked as the shaking will break them up and release the juices) and could be ready sooner than stated if you shake the jar a couple of times a day. Make sure to squeeze all the Raspberries through the sieve though to get all that yummy juice!

Relating to the vodka/ cranberry, has any one tried using pure juice instead of the berries ?

Oh, forgot to mention that I used the soaked cranberries in the "Cranberry ripple cheese-cupcakes" recipe from this website. I added a little quark to the cheesecake mixture and made a whole cake rather than single cupcakes, but it turned out perfectly.

Beautiful colour, nice taste. I would recommend using a little less sugar. I filled it into two beautiful half-litre glas bottles, and am now looking forward to handing this out as a gift this Christmas (and drinking the leftovers).

Made this 2 weeks ago, couldn't get fresh or frozen cranberries so I used dried and the result is very good, just wondering if I can use some of the cranberries with ice cream. Having also made the limoncello I can thoroughly recommend both of these.
