Looking for the Card Cupids Blog Hop?! Go HERE.
This has been an amazing year, and I have a lot to be Thankful for! We hosted Thanksgiving at our house this year, and it was a ton of fun. I spent two days in the kitchen baking pies, a cheesecake (crossing one more thing off of my 25 before 25 list) , the biggest Turkey my kitchen has ever seen (24 lbs!) and tons of potatoes.

I wanted to share this recipe for Cranberry sauce with you, because my lands it was Delicious! It's from Epicurious and has 1/3 cup vodka in it, if that helps interest you ;)

I predict it will make a re-appearance at Christmas dinner too.

Cosmopolitan Cranberry Sauce
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag fresh cranberries, rinsed, drained, and picked through
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup vodka
  • 3 tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or Triple Sec (I omitted the liqueur and used mandarin juice-we have a mandarin tree)

In heavy medium saucepan over moderate heat, combine cranberries, sugar, and 1/2 cup water. Bring to boil, stirring often to dissolve sugar, then reduce heat to moderately low and simmer, stirring often, until thickened and reduced to about 3 cups, about 15 minutes.

Transfer to medium bowl and cool, stirring often, until tepid, about 30 minutes. Stir in vodka and liqueur. Transfer to serving bowl, cover, and refrigerate until chilled and set, at least 2 hours. (Sauce can be made up to 2 weeks ahead and refrigerated.) Serve chilled or at room temperature.
