Hot Buttered Bourbon

Yield 20 servings
This is almost as good without the bourbon as it is with it.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound butter, softened
  • 1 (16-ounce) package light brown sugar
  • 1 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 liter bourbon
  • 4 quarts hot brewed coffee
  • Sweetened whipped cream
  • Garnishes: cinnamon sticks, ground cinnamon

How to Make It

  1. Beat first 5 ingredients in a large bowl at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in ice cream; freeze in an airtight container until firm.

  2. Combine ice-cream mixture, bourbon, and coffee in a large bowl, stirring well. Or for 1 serving, combine 3 tablespoons ice-cream mixture, 3 tablespoons bourbon, and 3/4 cup coffee in a large mug, stirring well. Serve with sweetened whipped cream; garnish, if desired.

  3. Note: Ice-cream mixture may be frozen up to 1 month.
