Berries & Bourbon

The Bourbon boom isn’t likely to fade any time soon as a more and more people are discovering unique regional styles as distilleries continue to open across the country. In 1964, Congress officially declared Bourbon a distinctive product of the United States. The folks from Ky Bourbon Trail (kybourbontrail.com) refer to this corn-based whiskey as “America’s Official Native Spirit”. Having grown up in Louisville, the home of the first bottled Bourbon, I’ve long known that the complex flavor notes of vanilla, fruit/oak, caramel, and spice make this Native Spirit an excellent addition to many recipes. I personally think Bourbon goes exceptionally well with summer berries and dairy products. I hope you will enjoy these ParfaitPro Vanilla Yogurt recipes I’ve created using a bit of Bourbon and a lot of love!
