Of course, in true Teacher fashion he made it better, and it’s become a must-have
at Thanksgiving every year.

  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup Jack Daniels

Take out the cranberries and stir in the secret ingredient: 1/4 cup give or take of Jack Daniels.

Drunken Cranberries Ingredients

  • 1 12 ounce bag fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup Jack Daniels

Drunken Cranberries Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

1. Combine the cranberries, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small baking dish and cover.
2. Bake for about 55 minutes. Remove the cover and stir to melt any un-dissolved sugar.
3. Return the dish to the oven and bake for about 5 to 10 more minutes, or until the cranberries are soft and surrounded by a syrupy sauce.
4. Remove the dish from the oven and immediately stir in the bourbon, to taste.
5. Let the dish cool to room temperature, then chill for at least hour before serving. The sauce will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator.

 

If you’re not into Jack Daniels or the bourbon called for originally, experiment with your favorite liquor. I’ll bet Cointreau or another orange-flavored liquor would be delish.

Try them, then let me know what you think!

  1. Look absolutely gorgeous and I bet they taste just as good, but quarter cup of JD Not a desert to be taking at lunch eh Amy Sue

    • Vince,

      I suppose the JD could be a problem if you ate the whole batch, but a serving (or two) at lunch shouldn’t be a problem. At least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 😉

      Thanks for commenting!
