I never would have been turned on to drinking bourbon if not for Bourbon on 18th (of epic chalk art fame). So when I emptied a bottle of bourbon recently, I held onto the bottle since it still had that certain sweet, rich, authentic flavor about it. Here’s a recipe for Bourbon-Infused Honey Mustard that incorporates a subtle note of bourbon to my favorite summer condiment.
RECIPE: Bourbon-Infused Honey Mustard
-1 just-emptied bourbon jar
-1/2 cup mustard seeds
-3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
-1/3 cup water
-other herbs, if you want
1. Soak the seeds in the vinegar-water solution, in the bourbon jar, for 2 days. This is the part where you might feel like you are doing a science experiment.
2. Then, pour some of the seeds in a bowl, and pour the rest into the food processor. This is so you can re-mix the whole grains with the smooth paste later.
3. Process the grains with honey (to taste) and other herbs (if you want) until it’s smooth.
4. Mix the grains back in, and there you have it.
Anyone else have any interesting recipes that incorporate bourbon or any other kind of liquor you’ve gotten hooked on in DC? Have any favorite cocktails at Bourbon? Or just care to comment on the epic Ketchup Vs. Mustard debate?
