So you’ve been down the Tennessee Whiskey Trail and now you’ve got more whiskey than you know what to do with. Well instead of putting yourself through another hangover why not broaden your use of the fire water. Here are eight recipes that’ll make use of your whiskey.

Bourbon-Glazed Pork Belly Chunks

Bourbon’s slightly sweet nature lends itself well to stick glazes for meat. These pork belly chunks are crispy and sweet when marinated in ketchup, soy sauce, star anise, honey, and of course any type of bourbon, including your Tennessee Whiskey. These are great for party horderves.

Grilled Chicken with Whiskey-Ginger Marinade

Nothing compliments chicken like a unique marinade. Sixty minutes in this whiskey-ginger sauce and you’ll think your chicken was given new life. 

Sticky glazed ribs

These ribs turn sticky with a whiskey glaze for a finger licken good meal, served best with coleslaw, fries, and a cold beer.

Filet Mignon with Sweet Bourbon-Coffee Sauce

For something a little more fancy, try this skillet sauce with filet mignon. The sauce is made with whiskey, coffee, and seasonings. If you don’t have any filet mignon, it’ll probably serve as a great sauce for just about any type of steak. 

Bourbon Fudge Brownies

If you’re in the mood for something a little more sweeter, these bourbon fudge brownies will hit your sweet tooth just right. The splash of bourbon creates an oh-so-subtle flavor that really makes the chocolate shine. Your party guests will be asking what chocolate you used, when the real secret is whiskey!

Oven Baked Maple Bourbon Glazed Bacon

If you didn’t think bacon could get any better, well get ready for this. Adding a maple bourbon glaze to your favorite bacon is easy. Simply coat the bacon in the glaze and then cook it in the oven until crispy. 

Maple-Bourbon Ice Cream

Another easy-to-make treat is maple bourbon ice cream. Just a splash of maple syrup and bourbon and sprinkles of cinnamon can transform any store bought vanilla ice cream into a fancy treat for you or your guests. They’ll never know. We won’t tell. 

One-Pan Whiskey-Flavored Pork Chops

Add some flavor to your pork chops with this recipe. Simply start out by browning pork chops and mushrooms as you would normally over a stovetop. Then deglaze the pan with some of that good ole Tennessee Whiskey. Cover with sour cream and bake for an hour, and you’ve got a great dinner with only one pan to clean.
