An establishment called The Rum House would not normally be my first choice for drinks. It’s the title. And the location – right off Times Square. I don’t have anything against rum, just like I don’t have anything against vanilla. But given the choice in a city that serves everything, a girl wants her whiskey like she wants her chocolate.
I was happy to discover that the title was a bit of unintended irony - The Rum House does whiskey.
Bourbon maple glaze on sweet potatoes is a good idea.
Scotch whipped cream goes well with whiskey chocolate tart.
Hope everyone had a nice and whiskey-filled Thanksgiving!
You know it’s a going to be fun cooking when you have to buy bourbon, Scotch, and Irish whiskey for the recipes.
This Thanksgiving, I am still thankful for whiskey and have kept some of my favorite whiskey recipes from last year – bourbon cranberries, butterscotch pumpkin pie, and Scotch whipped cream (recipes available In the Kitchen). I will also be welcoming guests to my apartment with a mug of whiskey cider (recipe available In a Cocktail).
But there’s always room for some new traditions. This year, my whiskey additions to the menu are: baked sweet potatoes with a bourbon and maple sauce and a whiskey chocolate tart for dessert.
