Cranberry Sauce With Orange Liqueur

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by DesertRose15

I use either Grand Marnier or Cointreu in this recipe. The additions of liqueur and orange zest make this cranberry sauce a holiday favorite at our house.

This is the recipe I used last year for the holidays and it was a great hit. The orange liqueur adds a subtle hint to the relish.
