Cranberry Liqueur (David)

Author/Submitted by: Narsai David, San Francisco Chronicle, 12/5/90, Stephen Ceideburg
Servings: 4
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Fruits / Gin / Liqueur / Wine

1  cup  White wine or water
1  cup  Sugar
12  ounces  Cranberries
6    Whole allspice
1    Cinnamon stick
1    Lime, quartered and seeded
1    Knob fresh ginger, 1 inch long, thinly sliced
2  cups  80-proof gin

Heat wine or water with sugar until dissolved and boiling. Place cranberries, spices, lime and ginger in the bowl of a blender or food processor. Add boiling syrup and process for 30 to 40 seconds. Pour into a container with a tight-fitting lid. Add the gin, cover and set aside for 1 or 2 weeks. Strain through a fine sieve.

This is for folks who like to toast their feet by the fire while the snow falls outside. A little seasonal cheer... It also looks like a good way to use up those nasty little berries that always seem to pop up in every ones kitchen this time of year. This is from Narsai David, a Bay area restauranteur, chef and food critic.
