Place the cranberries and ginger in the bottle of vodka. Cap and allow to steep for 10 days at room temperature. Be sure to turn the bottle over once each day. Strain the vodka through cheesecloth, being sure to squeeze excess vodka from the cranberries. Return the liquid to the bottle and cap.
Into small skillet, pour the sugar and water. Split the vanilla bean and scrape contents into the skillet. Add the vanilla bean husk to the water and bring to boil while stirring. Take off the heat after the sugar has completely dissolved. Once at room temperature, transfer to a sealable bottle. Do not strain.
