    Rum is a fairly involved process. And need sugarcane to be made.

    Ah, cannot be made with fruit? Otherwise a cranberry-fermented liquor will do

    You could make a cranberry wine easily enough but it'll take a few weeks to ferment, then a few more months to mature.Then you'd have to distil it, a bit more complicated & nearly always illegal icon_biggrin.gif
    A cranberry/rum equivalent to sloe gin would be easy but again it'll take a couple of months.

    Try this: Place two cups of fresh cranberries in a saucepan with 2 Tbl of water and 3/4 cup of sugar. Simmer over medium heat until berries begin to burst. Place berry mixture in a clean glass jar and top with 750 ml of white rum. Allow to steep for a week, then strain.

    I have made lots of flavored vodkas, mostly fruit and spice flavored vodkas. I think the process for rum would be the same.

    Check out this website for basic directions:

    This is not exactly what you are looking for, but the flavors are there.

    Add a good splash of Meyers's rum to cranberry juice with some ice in a sparkly glass. Garnish with a lemon slice or lime.

    Goes down nicely.
