    other uses for bourbon

    I have to use a CPAP breathing machine at night. It has a humidifier that can get a little funky from time to time. I started adding a couple drops af bourbon when filling the reservoir with water. Seems to extend the time between cleanings and my nose starts my dreams off at the barrel house.

    Aside from cooking and the bad bottle draino, what have you used bourbon for?

    Also for flavoring my coffee.

    Occasionally bourbon cleans out my bowels for me.

    Bourbon is great after brushing your teeth, swish and swallow, never spit!

    Bourbon is universally used as a lubricant.

    Re: other uses for bourbon

    This counts as cooking, I guess, but I use it to make a very aromatic bourbon syrup for waffles and pancakes. Makes the entire house smell a bit like a rickhouse. I have considered making the bourbon syrup on Derby Day just for the smell.

    Relatedly, I have a bourbon-flavored candle.

    I've used it to test the flame point of alcoholic liquids at room temperature...

    It has too much sugar to really use it for many cleaning purposes.

    Re: other uses for bourbon

    I slow cooked a Guiness pie in a crock-pot two nights ago and instead of beer i used a cup of bad EC12 i had - worked quite well indeed when i brought the leftovers in for lunch it had some asking what was in it as it smelled good...

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    I use it occasionally as a substitute for fondue fuel. (>100 proof)
