Bourbon has been a worldwide favorite of many a bartender and the key ingredient in several legendary cocktails for nearly two centuries. With its robust and smoky flavor spectrum, it’s really no shock that bourbon is beginning to make its way into kitchens at home as well as with professional chefs around the globe. Bourbon goes surprisingly well with a full range of foods, everything from desserts like chocolate truffles, pies, and milkshakes to savory offerings such as salad dressings, meat marinades, and glazes, plus foods you wouldn’t expect could be bourbon-ized like grilled cheese or braised scallops.
