Santa Would Love One

Not sure how I obtained a subscription to Southern Living Magazine, I have been getting it in the mail at least for the last 6 months. I have to say, I have enjoyed flicking though, turning the glossy pages, reading the good articles BUT best of all – the fabulous recipes!

I stumbled on this recipe in the November issue, initially as a sauce to go with Thanksgiving dinner. As soon as I tasted it I knew I was going to not eat it – I was going to drink it!!

I’m not sure if I’m allowed to copy and share their recipe (I’ll wait to see if they tell me to take it down) so write it down while you can!! I made a batch of this to make my cocktail of the month.

Spicy Citrus-Cranberry Relish

  • 4 cups frozen cranberries ( I used fresh)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 jalapeno (it says to take out seeds, I keep them – I like the heat)
  • 1/4 cup flat leaf parsley
  • 2 tbsp fresh orange
  • 1 tsp grated lime zest

Process all ingredients in a food processor until mixture is chopped and sugar has devolved, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a bowl. Cover and chill at least 4 hours. Store covered in refrigerator for up to a week.

Now for the cocktail recipe……..

Santa’s Helper

In a tall glass: Half fill with ice, add 2 tablespoons of the cranberry relish, fill the rest of the glass with ice

In a shaker:

Shake, pour over ice and top with Club Soda. Garnish with a lime wheel. Serve with a stirring stick or straw. Yummo.

Drink responsibly : )
