I’ve decided that bourbon is my favorite ingestible item, so I am starting a list of foods I’ve found on the interwebs that respects that. This may turn into its own blog someday. It’s extremely important.
I also want to thank the good folk(s) at cozywalls.com for inspiring this.
I’ll just keep adding to this page…
The Hotttttt Toddy (with bourbon or rum)
I would be remiss to not add the hot toddy to this page, which tastes great with bourbon or rum. Back in December when my little brother was visiting me here in the arctic circle, we embarked on a journey that led us to the Kraken. The journey began with me saying to him, “Brudder, we need to find something that I can look forward to having at the end of every day–every single day– that will help me survive this god-forsaken winter.” We settled on the hot toddy, of which its goodness neither of us had yet tasted. And so it was.
- Make a cup of hot tea (I use Constant Comment, which is an orange spice tea)
- Add 1 oz (or a shot) (or 2 shots, if you’re needing it) of rum or bourbon
- Add a spoonful of honey
- Add a slice of lemon, or a splash (or spoonful) of lemon juice
Put it in your mouth.
Spices and Salad Dressings?? Get out.
I never saw this one coming. But you can apparently acquire spices influenced by “the bourbon.”
Here I introduce to you “Bourbon Smoked Paprika“. Genius, people.
What can I make with bourbon smoked paprika, you ask?? Dip, bitches.
Smoky Red Pepper and Feta dip. You’re welcome.
You can also rub it all over your body, like I’m going to do tonight.
These crazy assholes even figured out a way to make a SALAD DRESSING out of bourbon, for all you diet-conscious folk. Made with one of my favorites, Woodford Reserve.
Bourbon Layer Cake with Bourbon Ganache and Milk Chocolate Buttercream
Layers? gooood. Ganache? goooood. Buttercream? goooooood. But who knew you could incorporate bourbon into ALL these things, and then put it in your mouth???!!! I might just skip all that and poor the ganache in my bathtub and have a little quality time by myself in there.
