Maple Bourbon Cranberry Sauce

Authoradmin
DifficultyBeginner

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 heart…thank goodness for this time of year when I can live on it!

In a saucepan bring cranberries and water to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover the pan as the cranberries will start to pop & splatter. Reduce heat to medium, stir in maple syrup, simmer for 8-10 minutes. Stir frequently, smashing the cranberries against the edge of the pan. Remove sauce from the heat when it's the consistency you like. Add some cinnamon and stir in bourbon to taste.
