Instructions

Start by giving the cranberries a quick wash and adding them to a pot on medium heat.  Add in the maple syrup, brown sugar, orange zest, and cinnamon stick. Stir everything as the cranberries start to open up.

Once the cranberries have all opened up, turn the heat down to a low simmer and cook for 10 minutes.

Add in the bourbon, stir, and cook covered on a low simmer for another 5 minutes.

Notes

This cranberry sauce recipe is a little tart, to make sure it doesn't overpower the dish it's being served with, if you like your cranberry sauce sweeter use a 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
