- 2 C chopped cranberries
- 1.5 C water
- 1 C granulated sugar
Cranberry Lemon Drops:
- 1 C cranberry simple syrup from above

Coarsely chop the cranberries and place in a medium saucepan with water. Simmer the cranberries for 20 minutes.
Gently mash the cranberries and strain through cheesecloth or a fine strainer (you should have about 1 cup of juice, add more water if not).
Place the juice back in the saucepan with 1 cup of sugar. Bring to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Set aside to cool.
Fill a shaker halfway with large chunks of ice. Add in 2 oz (1/4 cup) of each the cranberry simple syrup, lemon juice, and vodka.
Shake until mixed and chilled well, and pour into a martini glass. Enjoy immediately!
