Jack Daniels Cranberry Relish Recipe Featured in Garden & Gun Magazine

A Tennessee bistro adds a smoky kick of whiskey to this holiday essential

For over a decade, a Jack Daniels–infused cranberry relish has been a staple on the holiday menu at Dancing Bear Lodge, a rustic resort in the Tennessee Smokies whose bistro highlights Appalachian-inspired dishes. Executive chef Jeff Carter says it just made sense to incorporate a Tennessee whiskey into the recipe—to add a “subtle charred, smoky flavor” and to pay homage to their home state. “And because I enjoy sipping on good whiskey on occasion.”
