Ditch that canned cranberry sauce NOW! Unless you love it. But I can’t imagine you’ll go back to it after trying this recipe. There are six total ingredients, and if you make it a few days in advance, the flavors kick in something fierce. Let me know how yours turns out.

A Boozy Cranberry Sauce

  • a 12-ounces bag of fresh cranberries, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup sugar or Stevia
  • 1/3 cup vodka
  • 3 tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
  • 1/2 teaspoon of orange zest
  • 1/4 cup water

Use a heavy medium saucepan and a low-medium heat while adding the cranberries, sugar, and 1/4 cup water. Bring to boil, stirring often to dissolve sugar, then reduce heat as low as you can low and keep stirring until about 20 minutes. Add the vodka and orange liqueur (I used triple sec), then the orange zest. Let the alcohol cook for about 5 minutes, remove from heat and transfer to a glass storage container. Refrigerate and allow it to set for 2 hours, and you are GOOD.
