Best Bourbon to Cook With

When cooking with bourbon we use Weller Special Reserve. It is a sweeter bourbon and is priced around $30.00. Other bourbons like Wild Turkey, Bulliet, or Jim Beam work just as well. Save the high-end bourbons for drinking!

In most recipes with bourbon, the alcohol is burned off while cooking leaving that rich bourbon flavor.
