Ingredients

  • 4

    cups cranberries (fresh or frozen)

  • 1 1/2

    cups sugar

  • 2

    cups water

  • Agave Syrup

  • 3

    T Blanco tequila

  • 2

    T Orange liquor

  • Limes

Directions

Combine cranberries, water and sugar in a large saucepan over high heat. Strain cranberry mixture through fine mesh sieve, adding up to 1 cup additional water to make more syrup. Press and stir cranberries against sieve to extract as much syrup as possible. You will end up with a beautiful ruby-red cranberry syrup! I use mine for cocktails (margaritas, champagne, etc...), but this syrup would also be good over pancakes or waffles. Makes ~ 3-4 cups syrup (great holiday gift!). Store in refrigerator for up to one month. In a shaker over ice, mix 2-3 T cranberry syrup, 3 T silver tequila, 2 T orange liquor (not triple sec!) juice of 1 lime and a squeeze of agave nectar. Pour into chilled martini glasses. Cheers!
