I made Cranberry Liqueur last year, and I can tell you right now, this is a new tradition!
You. Must. Make. This!
Yes, I did make a double batch, for gifts, you know.....
The strained cranberries are also delicious. They are wonderful stirred into a bundt cake, or muffins or even over vanilla ice cream with a splash of the liqueur, for extra measure.
