Made this up today, Thanksgiving 2005, based on a recipe for a mixed drink I saw yesterday in the NY Times. The drink was developed by Audrey Saunders, owner of the Pegu Club in SoHo, NYC. As for the cranberry relish, it was the best I have ever tasted; BF had several helpings before dinner. Keep a copy for next Thanksgiving or Christmas or anytime. Applejack is an inexpensive liquor that most liquor stores have sitting somewhere on their shelves. This is something I might make before any other dishes, and leave sitting in fridge until ready to serve. Therefore, chilling time is not included.
