“I wanted to make our Festive Cranberry Salad, and one of the ingredients is Cranberry Cordial. I had trouble finding something suitable in the grocery store, but I found this recipe online and decided to give it a try. I can’t attest to it’s value on its own, as I don’t drink alcohol, but it worked great in the cranberry salad.” – April Ferre
