    Re: Bourbon infusion?

    Every Christmas, I'll dump some candy canes in a half bottle of bourbon. Shake it up a bit, let it sit for a day or so, and it makes for a nice little sipper on a chilly December evening. S'pose I could concoct some kind of cocktail out of this...

    Or just throw in a little good chocolate. Mmm

    Well, made my yearly candy came infused bourbon last night. AAA 10 Star. The 10 star has a bit of young spice to it, so I think the pairing should work well.
    Maybe take a little Kevin's suggestion and eat some chocolate with it.

    Re: Bourbon infusion?

    I saw there is book out there (Amazon) with some infusion recipe's for all sorts of spirits. It made my Christmas list, so we see if I have been a good boy.

    I like instruction for a while before I venture off path on my own. I will let you all know if the book is good. Unless I was deemed naughty this year.

    Naughty or nice, both have their rewards.

    Hey, you don't enjoy life without making a few mistakes along the way. This one just happened to smell like fire and death.
    I keep a bottle of habanero infused tequila around to make margaritas. They are great.

    Tried this the other night and it is great. Even my step-daughter who doesn't like bourbon or peppermint liked it.

    At my bar, we infuse Rittenhouse with Pu-Erh tea, which is a fermented varietal. It's quite nice, and provides a terrific base to create from.
