Get Boozy with It


There is no sour mash when it comes to TRUE Kentucky Bourbon…keep your Jack away from my Evan. This Kentucky Colonel does not mess around with fake bourbons…I would lose my commission.

Kentucky Bourbon Balls
The Courier-Journal, Louisville, KY

Yields 50

3 Cups NILLA wafers finely crushed
1 Cup sugar, powdered plus extra for rolling
1 1/2 Tbls cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 1/2 Cup pecans finely chopped
3 Tbls corn syrup, light
1/2 Cup bourbon
1 to taste sugar, white for rolling

Mix together vanilla wafers, powdered sugar, cocoa, nuts, corn syrup and bourbon; mix well and shape into 1 to inch balls. Roll in sugar and powdered sugar.

Store in airtight container.

Chef’s Note: You can replace the bourbon with dark rum, but why would you want to?
