From Clermont to Lexington, The Kentucky bourbon trail is a history-laden trail of artisanal bourbon distilleries. They’ve been crafting fine Kentucky bourbon for two centuries. In recent years, bourbon whiskey, a distinctly American specialty, has been gaining in popularity with connoisseurs of both fine food and spirits. We’re going to take you on a culinary tour of Bourbon Country with pleasing dishes that will wow your guests around the grill. Teetotalers, take heart ---- we’ll have plenty of sweet tea for you to drink. The bourbon will all be in the food! Take a peek:
Honey-Bourbon Glazed Salmon – Just a whiff of ginger, some clover honey, and Kentucky Bourbon make a delicious soak for your salmon.
Kentucky Cabbage Slaw –you’ll find a hint of southern sweetness in this fresh & crunchy vegetable slaw. Perfect accompaniment to serve with rich barbecued dishes
Bourbon-Laced Ribs - Baby back ribs, parbaked then finished on the grill, laden with an exquisite bourbon grill sauce, with a few ingredients that might pleasantly surprise you! This is what grills were made for.
Succotash – Now it wouldn’t be the south if we weren’t serving succotash! The south has as many recipes for susccotash as the Italians do for spaghetti sauce. This one is our favorite. The big three essentials (corn, baby limas, and tomatoes) are joined by a bit of applewood smoked bacon, sweet Vidalia onions, and fresh basil, among other things.
Stonefruit Ice Cream Sundaes -toasted pound cake cubes, a glorious vanilla bean ice cream, and a buttery bourbon-nectarine sauce all make this dessert something truly special.
