Strawberry Shortcake with Bourbon Strawberry Sauce

After making the Slow-Cooked Bourbon Chicken, I had bourbon left over and wanted to make a few other recipes. We love strawberry shortcake so I decided to try a couple of different recipes! Previously I posted a quick and easy recipe to make your own whipped cream using bourbon – Strawberry Shortcake with Bourbon Whipped Cream. Even though it was excellent I wanted to use the strawberries as part of the syrup. For this recipe I served the sauce warm over a biscuit topped with sliced strawberries. Then I added some whipped cream. It was a great topping for a biscuit since they tend to be a bit dry. You could also make this sauce and chill it in the refrigerator. I would imagine it would be a great topping for ice cream and other desserts.

Ingredients
Shortbread, angel cake, or your favorite cake
Strawberries, Sliced
Whipped Cream

Topping
2 cups Fresh Strawberries, sliced
1/8 to 1/4 cup Sugar
1/8 cup Water
2 tbsp Bourbon

To make the sauce combine the strawberries, sugar, water and cook until strawberries are tender and the liquid starts to thicken. This takes about 10 minutes. Stir in bourbon and cook for another minute.

    1. This is the first time I tried adding alcohol and was happy when it turned out good! I bet there are a lot of other great options instead of bourbon!

    1. It really does make it more fun! It was the first time I ever added alcohol to a dessert like this! I will have to look for some more quick and fun desserts for the summer. 🙂

    1. Thanks Peri! It really was quick to put together these great desserts! It would also be nice if you are entertaining and want a quick and delicious dessert – plus it just looks great. 🙂
