Bourbon Buttercream Frosting


Hmm. I realized today I’m not a huge fan of bourbon (neither in food nor in a snifter). If you’re not a fan of bourbon either, you may want to stay away from this recipe or cut the amount of bourbon in half.


  • 1 c. butter
  • 1 to 1 1/2 lb powdered sugar
  • 3 T. bourbon
  • half-and-half
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Beat butter until creamy. Add half of the powdered sugar and beat, followed by the half-and-half, bourbon and vanilla. Mix until blended. Add the remaining sugar and beat until thick and smooth. I didn’t give an amount of half-and-half because you will most likely need to adjust the amount needed to achieve your desired consistency.

Recipe rating:  (if you’re not a bourbon fan)
