Sipping Cream & Kentucky Derby Party

This week I have been working with Maker’s Mark developing new bourbon recipes. As its Kentucky Derby times and all, this is a fun and easy bourbon drink to serve up. I got inspiration to this recipe when i was down south in nashville a few weeks ago, and heard that people drink something called “Sipping Cream” which is basically a southern version of an Irish cream liqueurs.. such as baileys. So of course i had to give this a shot, and see if I could make a home made version in my own kitchen and after some experimenting with my kitchen Ninja mixer i came up with this absolutely delishs recipe for Sipping Cream. Its easy to make and all you need is a Kitchen mixer. Will definatly be sipping on this for the derby day..

Bourbon Sipping cream -
the ultimate southern dessert drink

1.75 cups Makers mark
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 – 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 tbsp instant coffee granules
2 tbsp good quality chocolate syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

Ad all the ingredients to the blender, mix. Taste it and if you like it sweeter can ad 2 tbsp powder sugar. Keep in refrigerator and lasts for about a month.

Check out the pictures from the Marker’s Mark & Esquire magazine Kentucky Derby Party at 11 Madison Square Park

Happy derby day!! linnea
