Happy Friday!!!!

Just got home from a fabulous trip to New York City....great friends, food and DRINKS!!!!

This takes a few days to make...but delicious...and a great holiday cocktail.

Actually leftover cranberry sauce helps make the sweet liqueur for this twist on a French classic.


1/4 cup water
3 tbl sugar
1/2 cup leftover whole berry cranberry sauce or canned
3/4 cup vodka
4 cups cold dry prosecco or champagne

Combine water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook about 5 minutes until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, stir in cranberry sauce and let cool. Stir in vodka and pour the mixture in a covered mason jar or similar container and refrigerate for 4 days.

After 4 days, strain the mixture through a sieve preferably with cheesecloth. Keep covered in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.

To make the cocktail, spoon 2 tbl of the cranberry sauced-vodka into a champagne flute add about 1/2 cup chilled champagne. You can garnish with a few fresh cranberries.
