Maple Bourbon Cranberry Sauce

When I can, I sneak a little bit of bourbon into just about everything. OK. Not everything, but lots of things. Like cocktails (obviously) and cranberry sauce.

There’s not much to say about cranberry sauce other then it is one of my favorite things in the entire world. This sweet-tart sauce has my heartโ€ฆthank goodness for this time of year when I can live on it!

What are your favorite Thanksgiving side dishes? I put cranberry sauce on everything. From this point until Christmas there will always be some in the fridge.

Then I will dream about it the rest of the year.

  1. Great minds think alike b/c yesterday I posted cranberry, blueberry & red wine! And yours with the bourbon…HEAVENLY! I can’t even believe we didnt talk about this over the weekend! Oh wait, we were having too much fun to talk about cranberries…but with booze, I mean, what are the odds?!

    1. OMG ~ Averie I just checked out your cabernet cranberry sauce. I’m like so in love. Great minds think alike with boozy cranberry sauce ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Love the colors and textures…Beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration- I can’t wait to try it. Fave Thanksgiving side dish? I just posted Sweet Potato Fries w/ Tangy Cranberry Dip. Can be served as an appetizer or as a fun potato alternative (they are heavenly when caramelized). Teenager approved.

  3. Sounds yummy!! Quick question, does it gel up (not sure of the correct term, lol) or become pretty solid when it cools?

    1. It’s of medium thickness. You can add some more water if you want it thinner or less for thicker. It does thicken a bit after chilled in the fridge.
