Title: Bourbon Cream Liqueur
Post by: dzell on January 13, 2010, 10:23:11 PM
After trying the Buffalo Trace Cream Liqueur, I knew I had to figure out how to get more. Seeing as how it's only sold in their distillery gift shop, getting more might not be an easy task. So tonight I tried making my first homemade bourbon cream liqueur. This is from a recipe I got from a fellow home brewer.

My initial impression is that this is pretty tasty (I'm planning to drink the hell out of this), but not quite what I'm looking for.
I definitely made a few mistakes along the way. Getting the milk/egg mixture too hot was the first. Not a lost cause, just not as 'aesthetic' as I'd like it to be (a little grainy in the end). Also caused a lot of extra straining before mixing in the milk/egg.

The taste is a-okay. Pretty darn tasty actually, just not what I had my heart set on. The almond extract seemed a little strong and masked the bourbon. The egg also seemed a stronger contributor to the flavor than I'd like.

Ideas to improve the next batch: use one egg (or no egg at all); half or no almond extract and more vanilla or chocolate; watch temperature; use all half and half or heavy cream/whipping cream.

If I don't use eggs, I can just combine ingredients, shake 'em up, chill and serve.

Although I don't consider this first attempt a complete success, I do look forward to trying this again! Also, I'm hoping it improves a little after chilling a day and giving the flavors time to combine.

Anyone else out there have experience making a cream liqueur? Drop a reply. I'd love to hear what works for you.

Wow...you we're not kidding around.

My experiment consisted of adding some bourbon to some chocolate milk.  It worked just fine.  I first tried it with some Lowland Scotch...it was not very good.  The bourbon worked much better.
