December 01, 2013

Ingredients

  • 1 16-oz bottle pomegranate juice, like POM Wonderful
  • 1 c. frozen Door County cranberries, thawed
  • 4 tbls. fresh grapefruit zest
  • 1 bottle Rehorst Citrus & Honey vodka
  • 1 c. superfine baking sugar
  • Coffee filters

Instructions

Put the cranberries and grapefruit zest in a jar, then pour pomegranate juice over them. Mash everything together with a pestle or the back of a large spoon. Cover and let sit for a few hours or overnight. Add the sugar and heat everything in a saucepan over low heat until it begins to thicken. Let cool and add vodka. Strain through cheesecloth, then twice through a single coffee filter. Strain one more time through 2 filters. Bottle and refrigerate. Keep cold until serving. This one is delicious topped with ginger beer. A drink with spirit, ginger and citrus is usually called a “Mule,” but I call this winter Mule a “Reindeer.”
