Cranberry sauce for adults only!
Add a little kick to your cranberry sauce this holiday season.
The little kick here comes from a bit of whiskey! But you could also use brandy, rum of Cointreau liqueur if you prefer. With the Cointreau, it’ll be a little more orangey flavored, but that’s a plus!
This starts with whole cranberries and there’s very few ingredients.
Substitute water for the booze and it’s an alcohol-free version you can serve to the kiddos.
