Southern Living's Cranberry sauce recipe featuring monk's road bourbon whiskey
It wouldn’t be Christmas dinner without cranberry sauce. Forget the jiggly canned kind. Southern Living’s recipe puts a classic twist on a traditional dish. This easy-to-make recipe can be left simmering on the stove and allow you to focus on spending time with family or preparing the rest of your Christmas dinner. We have a good feeling this will become a family favorite all year round.

- 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3-4 tbsp Monk’s Road Fifth District Series Bourbon Whiskey
