Taquila Sunrise Cranberry Sauce

Oh, yes.  I'm having a good time getting ready for my guests.  There is something so wonderful about a warm kitchen on a cool day.  Either you know what I mean or you don't.  A warm kitchen on a cool day makes me deliriously happy. 

Here is an original recipe for cranberries that it a little different and daring, but also delicious.

Sunrise Cranberry Sauce
12 oz bag of cranberries
1 c. sugar
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup taquila
Put the cranberries in a collander in the sink and wash them, pick out anything you don't want to eat.  In a medium pan, combine the sugar and juice over medium until the sugar is desolved.  Add the cranberries and taquila and cook until cranberries start to pop.  About 10 minutes.  Remove from the heat.   Cool to room temperature, then chill.

Of course, the alcohol burns off as it cooks.  And it is really, really good.  Just saying.

Remember to try new things.

  2. I know exactly what you mean about the joy of a warm kitchen on a cold day. Your lattice pie looks very pretty and the cranberry sauce is intriguing.

  3. cranberries with liquor sounds like a winning combination to me!

  4. This is the 3rd recipe I have ran into today made with alcohol! - woo hoo, I think I may have a booze themed party sometime! I love this twist on the normal cranberry sauce - yum!! Thanks for sharing it with the hearth and soul hop!
