Cranberry Liqueur / Spiked Cranberries

This double duty home-infusion recipe crafts a tangy-sweet cranberry liqueur AND delicious spiked cranberry garnishes to give your Thanksgiving cocktails an added punch... pun intended! My Cranberry Liqueur recipe is the foundation for the Cranberry Champagne Cocktail (pg. 54) and the Spiked Cranberries adorn the Tiki Collins (pg. 115) as well as the crowd-pleasing Cranberry Sauce Punch (pg. 132).
