Recipe: Wild Turkey Bourbon Glaze

By Colin Kearns

With the exception of wine, I don’t often use alcohol as an ingredient in my recipes, unless the wee nip I sip on as I cook counts. Instead, I generally prefer to save the hard stuff for after the meal. But, this high-octane glaze recipe sent to me by the distillers at Wild Turkey Bourbon sounds too tasty not to try. And the best part is, if you sip on the rest of the bottle as your turkey roasts, come dinnertime, you’ll be as half-baked as Aunt Mabel’s pumpkin pie.


Wild Turkey Bourbon Glaze

Ingredients:
- 1 cup butter
- 1 ½ cups pecans, finely crushed
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup apple cider
- 1/2 cup Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon

Directions:
- While the turkey is cooking, prepare the glaze by melting butter in a 1- to 2-quart pot set over medium heat. When the butter just starts to foam, add the pecans, brown sugar, and honey, stirring until the mixture forms a syrup. Add cider and Wild Turkey 101, briefly raise just to the boiling pot, then remove from heat and let cool.
- About 15 minutes before the turkey is ready, apply half the prepared glaze to the bird with a basting brush.
- When the turkey is done, remove it from the oven and brush on the remaining glaze. Let cool 15 to 25 minutes before carving.

I've made this before but used Birddog Blackberry Whiskey. The blackberry adds an extra fruity flavor that is delicious

To soften the blow of talking to extended family and your uncle's 3rd wife try this cocktail: "The Apple Orchard" 2oz of Wild Turkey, 1 oz Applejack (or apple brandy), 3 oz of Apple Cider. Serve on the rocks with a big wedge of Apple, maybe sprinkle in a little cinnamon if the mood strikes.

Eating the apple wedge is better then most desserts people will bring.

The only modification to this I would try is substitute maple syrup for the brown sugar.

You don't even need to put that on the turkey, just eat it.

Maple syrup might be better
