Cranberry liqueur (david)

Yield: 4 Cups

Measure Ingredient
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

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.

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.

Makes about 4 cups.
