I have enjoyed this week of Cranberry sharing and am very grateful to Caroline of Caroline's Cooking for hosting this annual event.  I thought it was appropriate to finish up with a cocktail to kick off the weekend.  

Let's take a look at what the others are sharing on this last day of the event........

Happy Friday everyone.  We have a busy day tomorrow but Sunday is going to be a snuggle on the couch with a good book kinda day.  Hope your weekend is wonderful.......

  • 1 1/2 c. fresh cranberries
  • 1  c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 2 c. amaretto liqueur

How to cook Cranberetto Sour

  1. Place the cranberries, sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook until the berries burst.
  2. Remove from heat and crush the berries with a potato masher.  Let rest for 15 minutes then strain through a fine mesh sieve, extracting as much liquid as possible.  Cover and chill.
  3. Place the liqueur, lemon juice and 5 Tablespoons of the cranberry mixture into a pitcher filled with ice.  Stir until well chilled.  Strain into glasses filled with ice.  Garnish with lemon slices and/or cranberries as desired.
