Appetizers & Sorbets: Cosmopolitan Sorbet

2 cups sugar
2 cups water
5 1/3 cups fresh or frozen
cranberries (not thawed; 24 oz.) ¼ cup vodka
¼ cup fresh lime juice
2 tbs Cointreau or other orange liqueur

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, 8-10 minutes. Pour through a 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.
