Forget that canned cranberry sauce this Holiday Season! Serve cranberry sauce with some zip!

Basic Recipe:
1 cup sugar
1 cup whisky, rum or other liquor
12 oz. cranberries (a typical bag size at the market)
1. Stir together the liquor and the sugar and bring to a boil.
2. Add Cranberries and return to a boil
3. Turn Heat Down and let boil for 10 minutes
4. Turn Heat off and allow to cool 1 hour
5. Pour into Ball Jar or other container. Allow to cool to room temp
6. Refrigerate at least 2 days before serving.

My favorite liquor to use is Whisky by far. Adds Great Flavor. Malibu Rum is excellent with pineapple & mango variations.

Even More Fun Ideas…
1. Grate 2 Tablespoons of orange rind. Heat the orange rind in a small, stick proof pan with NO OIL for 1-2 minutes until really soft. Add with the cranberries. Follow normal directions. Excellent with Whisky as the liquor.
2. Add 1 20oz can of pineapple or 1 ½ cups fresh pineapple along with the cranberries.
3. Add 1 15. Oz can of diced mangos or 1 generous cup diced fresh mango.
4. Add 2 teaspoons ginger. Great with whisky.

Some of my favorite combos:
Whisky Orange Cranberry Sauce
Whisky Pineapple Ginger Cranberry Sauce
Malibu Rum, Mango, Cayenne Pepper Cranberry Sauce
Like your food hot??
Try Adding 1 Tablespoon of Cayenne Powder
Really Daring??? Try adding ¼ cup cayenne powder – (This cranberry sauce alone will be very hot when eaten alone but with turkey, stuffing, gravy, potatoes…it is strong enough to impact!

I like to experiment with different varieties of cranberry sauce. You add a little to a big bit of turkey, stuffing and potatoes so you need your cranberry sauce to pack some flavor or it will get lost among all the other flavors. Cranberry Sauce should be bold! So be daring and try any of these yummy liquor filled cranberry sauces.

I love to use either Whisky or Malibu Rum in my cranberry sauces but just about any liquor will do. It is so simple to make. Cranberry Sauce takes about 20 minutes to make and should cool to room temperature and then be refrigerated for 24 hours before serving for the best consistency.
