My Mom's Spiked Cranberry Sauce
1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
(you can use homemade cranberry sauce if you want to make it)
a tablespoon or more of Cointreau
Stir the Cointreau liquor into the cranberry sauce a tablespoon at a time. Keep tasting the cranberry sauce and stop adding Cointreau when you're satisfied with the flavor. The Cointreau lends a great citrus note to the cranbery sauce and really brings out the flavor of the cranberries. Just don't add too much or the flavor of the alcohol begins to overpower the cranberry sauce.
Note: If you plan on having children at the table, make sure you set aside a non-spiked version of cranberry sauce for them to enjoy.
