In my mind, bourbon is the easiest drinking liquor. The sweetness of the corn mash and the smokiness imparted by the charred oak barrels give it a balance that makes it hard to beat in a cocktail, over ice, or on its own. But that smoky sweetness also makes it perfect for cooking. Whether you want to temper a dessert that might otherwise be too cloying or add a little complexity to a meat dish, bourbon is a wonderful go-to liquor for cooking.
