baked cranberry sauce with bourbon

Do you have enough bourbon in your life?

Not sure how to answer that?

Let me help you.

Are you drinking bourbon right now or eating a food that has bourbon as an ingredient?


Then the answer is no, you do not have enough bourbon in your life.

And if you had said yes?

Well, I still might say that you need more bourbon.

How can you ever have enough?

That’s right. You can’t.

Let’s bake some cranberries swimming in sugar and then pour bourbon all over them.

Sound like a plan?

Baked Cranberry Sauce
Recipe from Bobby Flay

  • 12 oz bag of cranberries, fresh or frozen (I used frozen)
  • 1 1/4 cups vegan sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup bourbon of your choice (or more)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

In a baking dish, combine the cranberries, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Stir it up until it looks like this:

Don’t eat it yet. I know you want to.

Cover and bake for 55 minutes.

Remove from the oven, stir, and bake for about 5 minutes longer. When your cranberries are soft, you’re good to go.

Remove from the oven again and stir in the bourbon. The bourbon should be as strong as you’d like, so add it by the teaspoon and do a few taste tests along the way to find the perfect flavor.

Let the cranberry sauce cool to room temperature and then place in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving. If you transfer the sauce to airtight containers you can store it for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator.
