With all the heavy-duty baked goods going through my kitchen this time of year, sometimes something light and refreshing is welcomed. I love using fresh cranberries while I can, since they aren’t around long.

I made this sorbet to have for a late night treat when we returned home on Thanksgiving evening, after a long day on the road. It was sweet and tart, with a hint of booziness from the addition of Grand Marnier. It would be a lovely palette cleanser in between courses for a special dinner like Christmas or New Year’s Eve.

And the color, cranberry anything is always gorgeous! While we’re on that train of thought, I think a cranberry-inspired cocktail is on my agenda this evening . So make sure to check back next week. Have a great weekend, everyone!
