American Classics: Ginger Peach Bourbon Pie

American Classics Alexandra Penfold Post a comment

For me, there are few things that taste as strongly of summer as Ginger Peach Iced Tea. This easy oatmeal crumb topped pie takes that summertime pairing and gives it a kick in the pie pan, as it were, with a healthy dose of bourbon. More

Scooped: Old Fashioned (Bourbon and Orange) Ice Cream

Scooped Max Falkowitz 2 comments

The Old Fashioned is what I turn to whenever I want to feel like a civilized grownup. I love how the force of the booze is set off by the delicate sweet-bitterness of citrus skin and the warm spice of Angostura. It eventually hit me that if this combination tastes so good in a cocktail glass, there's no reason it can't be similarly awesome in an ice cream. More

The Scoop: On Ice Cream and Bourbon Revelations

Meredith Smith 13 comments

Bourbon has never experienced the same celebrity among ice cream makers as, say, rum. But aside from just working the spirit into the flavor, I've recently stumbled upon two genius ways to bring bourbon and ice cream together. More

Wake and Bake: Pancakes with Apricot-Bourbon Sauce

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 1 comment

Let Them Eat: Quick King Cake

Let Them Eat... María del Mar Sacasa 6 comments

Stateside, particularly in Louisiana where the biggest Mardi Gras bash explodes every year, the cake is a sweet brioche-like confection with a cinnamon filling which includes a dried bean or pea (a stand-in for the baby doll). The person who discovers it is crowned king or queen for the day. More

Let Them Eat: Date Cake with Candied Bacon and Pecans

Let Them Eat... María del Mar Sacasa 3 comments

All summer long I interrupted serious conversations about bills and travel and getting ready for the move to New York, cooing dreamily, "Wouldn't a date cake with bacon be so ahhh-maaaazing?" I was a girl smitten with a confectionary Prince Charming, this close to doodling "I heart bacon" and "Mrs. Medjool" on my binder. More

Preserved: Bourbon Peach Jam

Scooped: Mint Julep Ice Cream

Scooped Max Falkowitz 1 comment

The mint julep is a brilliant cocktail, a study in contrasts. There's mint of course, flighty and effervescent. And there's bourbon, robust and complex and just a tad sweet—like a half-deserved slap from a comely Southern belle. There's nothing else to muck up the duet, save some crushed ice and a sprinkle of sugar. This ice cream follows the same principles to minty, bourbon-y nirvana. More

Serious Sweets: Bourbon and Brittle Banana Cream Pie

María del Mar Sacasa 4 comments

Banana cream pie always brings to mind those revolving fridges at diners, stockpiled with chilled desserts gussied up with from-the-can whipped cream bouffants. I love bananas—and those lit-up iceboxes—but it has never once occurred to me to order banana cream pie. It always looks jiggly and a bit sad, especially next to the buxom double-crust apple pie and the luscious chocolate silk. It was time to give the banana cream pie some help. And yes, bourbon is very much involved. More
