Nancy & David’s Nantucket Cranberry Sauce

1 cup water

1 tsp bourbon
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp cinnamon

Combine granulated sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Bring contents to a boil. Add fresh cranberries and return to a boil. Reduce heat, add bourbon, and boil for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Remove from heat, stir in spice and zest, and allow to cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until it’s time to eat. Makes approximately 2-1/4 cups.
