In Honor of SATC 2, and the un-official start of summer memorial day weekend of course!!

Its really such a shame my ice cream maker (yes I have one) is being stored at my parents house or I'd be making this asap!!! But if you happen to have one handy here's the recipe I found on Epicurious

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 5 1/3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries (not thawed; 24 oz)
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons Cointreau or other orange liqueur

Special equipment:

  • Special equipment: an ice cream maker



Bring sugar and water to a boil in a 3-quart heavy saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add cranberries and simmer, uncovered, until berries are collapsed, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour through a large sieve into a bowl, gently pressing on solids to extract liquid (without forcing pulp through), and discard solids. Cool syrup, then chill, covered, until cold.

Stir in vodka, lime juice, and Cointreau and freeze in ice cream maker. Transfer to an airtight container and put in freezer to harden.
