Drunken Cranberry Sauce

Recipe by  

"A family recipe we have used for years. We love it as a side dish to our turkey on Thanksgiving day. Also goes well on chicken, pork, and beef. Makes a great treat as an appetizer served with crackers, or can even be used over vanilla ice cream. I like to add the orange zest a couple tablespoons at a time, as not to overdo it. Adjust sweetness by adding 1 tablespoon sugar at a time at the end of cooking if needed."

This is a simple recipe with a great result! It is very similar to my usual method, but the little extra from the tequila really adds a nice zing. I will be making this again!

Great tasty recipe. I put all the cranberries in at once instead of half at a time as the recipe calls for. I also added a pinch of nutmeg & a healthy dash of cinnamon.
