    Favorite snack alongside your bourbon

    Hey all, what is your favorite snack to accompany your pour? Nuts? Chips? It's Monday night football tonight and I need some ideas.

    Cheers!

    I'm a pretzels guy anyway and also find them a good complement to bourbon, but mostly what I like with bourbon is...

    ...more bourbon.

    If drinking on the rocks, it's pretzels. If neat, maybe a small bit of dark chocolate, otherwise nothing.

    Chocolate (of course)... also nuts )macadamias mixed with dry-roasted almonds).

    Lately, when I want something a little more substantial, its been crackers and some really good triple-cream cheese.

    I am with the pretzel group, but most of the time not too much else but bourbon.

    Pistachios

    Right now I'm enjoying the heavenly combination of Rittenhouse Rye BIB and pistachios. Try it, trust me!

    I usually don't eat anything when I'm drinking spirits, but when I occasionally do it is usually either natural, unsalted nuts (pecans, almonds, walnuts), dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, apples, etc), or, rarely, brown sugar or other darkly sweet candy.

    While I can't say I often have it, even though it's fairly easy to make, there is a great spread for crackers, that you generally can only find in Kentucky, called Benedictine. It doesn't contain bourbon, but it's such a Kentucky "thing" that it just has to go well with bourbon.

    It is a cream cheese base flavored with cucumber and onion juice, then colored just a little with green food coloring.

    I don't know much about it, except it is ubiquitous in Kentucky. I don't know where it comes from, why it is called that, or why it has to be green. I like it. It's tasty.

    Recipes are easily found on the web.
