Cranberry sauce is a holiday leftover that just keeps on givin. You can put that shit in a sandwich, mix it in a salad, or even a cocktail. So go rescue that cranberry sauce from the back of the fridge and GET LIT WITH LEFTOVERS.

⅓ cups cranberry sauce*
4 shots vodka
3 shot Cointreau
4 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 ½ cups tonic or sparkling water

In a shaker or a big ass jar with a tight fitting lid combine the cranberry sauce, vodka, Cointreau, and citrus juice. Shake that shit together with some ice until it looks all mixed up and there aren’t any big clump of sauce. Pour the mixture through a strainer evenly between 2 glasses with some ice. Top each glass off with the tonic, again divided, and enjoy.

*leftovers, obvs.

Potato and Swiss Chard Gratin

Put down those mediocre mashed potatoes and pick up this superb side dish. Sure, a gratin is just a fancy sounding casserole but nobody will give a damn what the name is once they taste it.
