Yet again, I believed last years cranberry sauce couldnt be topped and so I was only going to remake it again this year… until I recalled that I had some red wine kept in the deep freezer especially for cooking functions.

Here is the fantastically fresh, tangy, sweet cranberry sauce from this past year but with an additional depth courtesy of cinnamon and red wine. Certainly perfect.

Cranberries, oranges, limes, cinnamon and red wine… perhaps I should call it sangria cranberry sauce? It sortan smelled like sangria!
