Bourbon Cranberry Sauce

Homemade cranberry sauce is so easy to make and sure to please when it includes bourbon!




  1. In a large saucepan whisk together the sugar, brown sugar and water until the sugar mostly dissolves. Add in the cranberries and heat over medium high heat.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil and the cranberries start popping, then reduce to a simmer and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and whisk in the bourbon. Use a potato masher to break up the cranberries. The mixture will thicken up as it cools.


Cranberry sauce can be frozen for up to 1 month.
