Cranberry Drinks, Appetizers and Sides

'Tis the season for cranberry dishes and I am going all out this year.  This is a snippet of what has been going on in my kitchen.

I'll start with this drink that would loosen you up a bit to have more fun in the kitchen.

Cranberry Daiquiri
(6 servings)
Dissolve 1/2 cup sugar in 1/2 cup water in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 cinnamon stick and 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel; bring to boil. Mix in 1/2 cup cranberries and cook until cranberries begin to pop. 

Cool; discard cinnamon. Pour mixture into jar; add 1/2 cup light rum. Chill. 

Strain syrup into pitcher; reserve cranberries. 

Add 6 tablespoons each dark rum, light rum, cranberry juice, and lemon juice to pitcher. Chill. Serve in Martini glasses that have been filled with crushed ice. Garnish with reserved cranberries.
