Sweet Tea and Lemonade with Bourbon Vanilla Extract


2 c No Sugar Added Lemonade 
2 c Sweet Tea made with Bourbon Smoked Sugar
2 1/2 Bourbon Vanilla Extract

Prepare the sweet tea (add in about 1/4 c or more Bourbon Smoked Sugar). Combine all other ingredients in a large pitcher. Rim mason jars with Bourbon Smoked Sugar. Serve over ice.

Bourbon Candied Bacon

8 pieces of thick cut bacon
1/4 cup Bourbon Smoked Sugar
2 Tbsp. Pure Cane Sorghum
1 oz Bourbon
Parchment Paper

 In a small bowl, mix together the Bourbon Smoked Sugar, Pure Cane Sorghum, and Bourbon.

Heat oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment. Cover each strip of bacon with the Bourbon Sugar and Bourbon covering. Bake for 20-30 minutes, and place the bacon on another sheet of parchment (if you try to pat grease off the bacon with towels, the candy coating will stick to the paper towels).

Spicy Bourbon Smoked Paprika Almonds

2 1/2 TBS olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 lbs raw almonds
2 1/2 tsp Bourbon Smoked Paprika
2 TBS Bourbon Smoked Salt
2 TBS chili powder

Add the garlic and oil to a large skillet, and cook the mixture until the garlic is slightly brown. Add all of the spices. Add almonds and cook on medium to medium high for 4-5 minutes. Enjoy!
