How about this one--this one will give you a buzz !!!!!!

Likier Zurawinka - only takes two days to prepare and it's ready to drink. This is perfect for an edible gifts basket and makes a nice toasting medium on Christmas or any holiday.

Makes 1 quart of Polish Cranberry Cordial
Prep Time: 20 minutes
•1 cup strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
•1 cup raspberries, washed and sliced in half
•1 cup sugar
•1 cup cranberry juice
•3 cups (100-proof) vodka
1.In a medium bowl, place sliced fruits and sugar. Mix, cover with plastic wrap and let sit on a counter for 24 hours.

2.Drain berries, reserving juices. (Berries may be used to garnish pound cake or ice cream, but must be refrigerated and used within one day.)

3.Mix reserved juices with cranberry juice and pour into a quart bottle. Add 3 cups vodka or until it comes nearly to the top of the bottle. Seal and shake well. Let stand 24 hours.

4.Strain through a coffee filter and transfer to a decanter. Store at room temperature. No aging is required. The cordial is ready to drink Na zdrowie !!!!!

If you like that one,You may enjoy this "Polish Martini"

1 1/2 measures of Krupnik liqueur
2 measures of Apple Juice
cocktail glass

1.Take Zubrowka and Krupnik from the freezer
2.Shake with crushed ice and strain the ingredients.
3.Serve in an ice-cold 5oz Martini glass, no garnish.

A Polish Martini tastes of honey due to the addition of Krupnik which is a honey-based liqueur---------Enjoy
