Cranberry Liqueur, homemade and delicious!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I made Cranberry Liqueur last year, and I can tell you right now, this is a new holiday tradition!

You. Must. Make. This!

It is delicious, as well as the leftover spent berries, stir them into muffins, coffeecake, and more.

Cranberry Liqueur, so good you will want to double the recipe!

 Yes, I actually made a double batch, because well, it is for gifts, you know.....

As a matter of fact, you might want to tuck a couple of bags of cranberries in the freezer, to start another batch at a later date because you can enjoy this liqueur any time of year.

Of course, it is wonderful simply sipped, but don't stop there. Make a delicious Seabreeze, with ruby grapefruit juice, vodka and of course the Cranberry Liqueur.

Now about those, strained cranberries. 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.
