A Lil' Dab of Bourbon

Welcome to A Lil’ Dab of Bourbon...

Some of my fondest memories are in the kitchen with my Gram. She spent a lot of time nurturing my naturally curious nature. Which basically consisted of me asking "Why?" to everything anyone ever said. We spent hours cooking together and as most Italian women, we take great pride in feeding our families. My Gram has since passed, but her famous catch phrase is still with me “A lil’ dab will do ya! “

Growing up in New Jersey, I remember when I started to drink, I never knew what to order and hated the "make it pink & sweet" because all girls will drink that philosophy. I wanted something that I could appreciate, enjoy and of course not wake up with a horrible hangover the next day!


Maker's Mark and coke was that first drink I felt comfortable & confident in ordering at the bar, not to mention I LOVED the taste! Gradually my palate progressed to Maker's and gingerale, then just ice, to eventually neat.


Needless to say I fell in love and wanted to try so much more! In fact, I love it so much that I try to incorporate it into my cooking on a steady basis. Hence  “A Lil’ Dab Of Bourbon.” My love of all things bourbon continues to progress, & I would love to have you follow along in all my bourbon adventures.
