Foodie Friday: Cooking With Bourbon

Oh what a weekend for food and drink! It's your choice. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with fun fiesta recipes, or in honor of the Kentucky Derby, go the Southern Charm route with bourbon.  Food and bourbon make one of the sexiest combos ever. I love the smoky caramel and vanilla flavor for both sweet and savory dishes.  And here's some trivia. Did you know that Bourbon whiskey, gets its name from Bourbon County, Kentucky? I should know, most of my family lives there. Today's post is a winner if you enjoy a good cocktail, barbecue, and a little horsing around.

HERE: 16 Recipes To Bet On

Lavender Mint Juleps
Serve this chic cocktail and your Derby Day party will be off to the races. How unique!

Kentucky Derby Mint Julep Cake
This simple but tasty cake features both bourbon and cream de menthe. Don't you just love a boozy dessert?

 Bacon Bourbon BBQ Chicken Kebabs
One of the main ingredients of this dish is homemade "bacon paste." The bacon adds so much flavor and juiciness to the chicken. Then the entire dish is topped off with bourbon-infused barbecue sauce. Whoa!

Grilled Cheese with Bourbon Melted Onions
The rich sweetness of the caramelized onions with the added splash of bourbon will change your boring grilled cheese into a 
mind-blowing meal.

Peach Bourbon Pie
This makes me think of my Grandma Pearl, but she probably didn't put any liquor in hers. Classic and I bet fabulous.

Crockpot Bacon Bourbon Baked Beans
Beans how they should be made with a cup of bourbon, molasses, brown sugar, thick cut bacon and more.

Gingered Peach Bourbon Thyme Smash
Doesn't this look and feel so Southern? I bet the folks in Louisville know this recipe. I would call this Summer in a cocktail glass.

Bourbon-Glazed Lemon Salmon
Generally, speaking, I always make some kind of glaze when cooking salmon. Never thought of adding bourbon though. Doesn't this 
look delightful?

Kentucky Derby Mini Chocolate-Pecan Cakes With Vanilla Bourbon 
Smash Ice Cream
The perfect dessert! The individual servings make this dish beautiful for a buffet. I have taken to making my own ice cream. It is so much better than store bought. And you'll often taste a touch of alcohol in mine. YUM!
Half Baked Harvest

Grilled Shrimp with Maker's Mark
 Butter Sauce
A basic shrimp recipe that gets jazzed up with what sounds like the best sauce ever. Think bourbon, apple juice, apple cider and more!

It's hard to resist a pink cocktail, isn't it? This just looks fabulously refreshing.

Oysters with Brown Sugar–Chipotle Butter
As Bon Appetit states: "If you’re not a raw oyster person, this buttery, broiled treatment should be in your repertoire." The bourbon is in the sauce.

Kentucky Derby Pie Milkshake
I may have saved the best for last! This decadent milkshake is made with chocolate and butter pecan ice cream, and of course, bourbon. Looks worth the calories!
