Cranberry Vodka

This past fall, a month after running the chicago marathon, Jamile, Adam and I went to run a small little marathon in Wisconsin.  The allure was that the entire marathon was on an old railbed trail and had a mile long train tunnel  that you got to go through twice.  I think everyone in this tiny town turned out to help with the marathon and we were served fresh grilled chicken upon finishing.  It was fall and cranberry harvest time and Adams' super significant other, Melissa is the best cook in the world.  We picked up a 5 lb bag of cranberries knowing that if someone could do something fabulous with them, it would be Melissa.

Flash forward to me drinking cranberry infused vodka in the bathtub.  While vodka purists may comment on the ice cubes in the glass, upon receiving the bottle, I couldn't wait for it to chill and immedicately poured some over ice to drink straight.  I must say that the tartness of the cranberry really offset the vodka flavor.  This is a life I can get used to.
