Yield: about 3 quarts

This sweet, berry-infused liqueur makes a lovely variation on a Kir Royale when mixed with Champagne or sparkling wine. Pour it into pretty bottles to give as a holiday or hostess gift. Everyone will think you went to a lot of trouble to make this cordial, but it's actually as simple as simmering water.


Ingredients:

  • 6 cups inexpensive medium-bodied red wine (such as Merlot or Shiraz)
  • 5 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 bag fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 3 cups brandy

Instructions:

In a large, nonreactive pot, bring wine, sugar, and cranberries to a simmer. Cook until cranberries pop their skins.


Cool mixture to room temperature; then refrigerate 2 to 4 days to steep berries.


Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve; then stir in brandy and transfer to glass bottles. Cordial will keep for up to 6 months.
