Sipping bourbon is an enlightening experience because, like a fine wine, nuances of countless flavor profiles, such as vanilla and oak, can be found within. It is these very flavors that also make bourbon a fantastic ingredient for cooking. The sweetness, smokiness, and oakiness of bourbon bring another layer of depth to sweet and savory foods alike. Try drizzling bourbon into your favorite sauce for a subtle kick, or in your caramel corn for a surprising bite.
