Bourbon- Cranberry Compote

I decided to change up my cranberry sauce this year, and I am glad I found this recipe.  My little cousin Jenna helped me prepare this, and I think she liked stirring the cranberries and listening to them burst.  I was able to make this the night before Thanksgiving, and refrigerated it covered.  Be sure to bring it to room temperature before serving, however!  Enjoy!
1 (12 oz) bag fresh cranberries
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup bourbon (I used Jack Daniels)

In a saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar, apple juice, and bourbon.  Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries begin to burst and the sauce thickens, 20-25 minutes.  Let cool before serving.
