Combine 1 cup of the water, 3 cups cranberries and 1/2 cup granulated sugar in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, and discard pulp. This will make your cranberry syrup.
Stir together cranberry syrup, fresh limeade vodka, and remaining 3 cups water in a pitcher. Pour over glasses of crushed ice, and top each with a splash of soft drink. Garnish with extra cranberries and lime slices.
