What’s Thanksgiving without Turkey, stuffing and Cranberry Sauce? Especially Cranberry Sauce with Grand Marnier.
Sure you can just buy a can of cranberry sauce and call it a day but what fun is that? Since I obviously like to cook, it was imperative that I make my own delicious Cranberry Sauce.
Making a good Cranberry Sauce is pretty straightforward but I wanted something a little different.
As the title implies, this should only be consumed by adults as it does contain alcohol. While most of the Grand Marnier will burn off, you might just want to play it safe with this one.
If Grand Marnier is not your thing, I also have a great Cranberry Sauce with Whiskey recipe. Also not kid-safe. But this cranberry recipe is: Simple Orange Cranberry Relish. Great on Turkey sandwiches!
If you also need a good stuffing / dressing recipe, make sure you check out my Southern Cornbread Dressing recipe.
