Bourbon Syrup

Yield Makes 2 cups
Use leftover syrup on waffles, pancakes, roasted bananas, or ice cream. Or add to iced tea along with fresh mint for a refreshing tea julep. You can purchase superfine sugar at the supermarket, or make your own by processing granulated sugar in a food processor until powdery.


  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup bourbon

How to Make It

  1. Bring superfine sugar, brown sugar, and 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; cook 10 minutes until reduced by half. Remove from heat, and stir in bourbon.
