Today, I’ll be on the noon news show on Channel 2, WDTN, Living Dayton. I’ll be doing Livefire Drunken Pound Cake with local berries, Maguey Sweet Sap, Four Roses bourbon, pound cake and ice cream. It’s just a simple dessert you can do to impress your friends while not being out in the heat too much! Also, we’ll be trying a bourbon milkshake!
The milkshake is easy as can be! One serving is:
1/2 cup milk
1 cup ice cream
2 ounces bourbon
Mix in a blender and enjoy!
The Livefire Drunken Pound Cake is found here!
The only difference is that I’ll use ice cream instead of pasty cream (it’s great either way)!
I almost forgot… I’ll be throwing out some grilling tips, too!
- Don’t overcomplicate things. Instead, plan on simple things that taste great, and spend the time enjoying your friends and family.
- Cook to temperature, not by time. Time can give you a guideline, but cooking chicken, burgers or sausage to 165 ensures safety. Cooking steaks to about 130 will give you medium rare, and pork chops or loin only need to hit about 145.
- Let meats rest under foil for 5 minutes. Juices will redistribute and stay in the meat instead of just on the plate!
- Use fresh, local ingredients. Local usually means fresher, riper, better, and it supports a smaller, local farm or company.
- Back the first tip… Enjoy the people; don’t be a perfectionist. If something isn’t perfect, the sun will still set today and rise tomorrow!
