You’ll want to thank me for this one! 15+ Bourbon Cocktail Recipes to get the Party Started
So I had misconceptions about bourbon. Probably not the typical misconceptions like all bourbons are made in Kentucky and bourbon has to be aged for two years. Rather, I thought bourbon was for men only and I thought men drank bourbon only during cold weather.
I learned all the facts and actually became a bourbon fanatic after we took the bourbon tour. Bourbon has a depth of flavor and is multidimensional. It’s great straight-up, over ice, with water, Coke, and a host of other mixers. Although bourbon experts contend straight is the only way to go!
I haven’t shared many bourbon drink recipes with you, but I do have two amazing dessert recipes that contain bourbon. And, I may be partial, but they are simple divine! I made a pound cake with bourbon it it, it’s a boozy delight! It’s a Woodford Reserve Bourbon Cake with Caramel Glaze. Woodford Reserve is a premium bourbon. My husband, may or may not have been a little upset with me for cooking with his premium bourbon. But, one taste and he forgave me… a little. As well, you are probably familiar with the other bourbon recipe, Bourbon Balls. They make appearances mostly at Christmas. They are decadent truffles that are filled with booze, sugar, and nuts. The balls of goodness are then dunked in chocolate. Bourbon Balls make great homemade gifts and actually they aren’t difficult to make.
Bourbon definitely has a time and place and with a little experimentation will become one of your go-to cocktails. I collected 15+ Bourbon Cocktail Recipes to get the Party Started for you to try.
