Assuming you've followed the initial instructions and it's been one month since you started your liqueur, it's time to strain out the solids. Now, just to be clear, it's only been one week since I posted the original instructions, but you're going to want to allow your cranberry liqueur to sit for one month (shaking 2-3 times per week) before you proceed with the following steps.
Once the liqueur has fully drained into the jar, top it with a fresh layer of plastic wrap before putting the lid back on and labeling it with the new dates and info. Now the liqueur will need to sit, untouched, for another month.
Next Monday, I'll explain how to rack your liqueur into its final bottle for either gift-giving or consumption.
Isn't this fun?
