5 [Boozy] Ways to Celebrate National Dairy Month
June is National Dairy Month. Beyond the traditional milk and ice cream, check out these boozy ways to celebrate the month.
Buffalo Trace Bourbon Cream
What’s not to like here? A mix of Buffalo Trace Bourbon and sweet cream results in this 30-proof goodness. Enjoyable straight, in coffee, mixed with root beer for an adult root beer float, blended into pancake batter or frostings, or as a topping for ice cream, this is a utilitarian foodie delight.
Ben and Jerry’s Urban Bourbon Ice Cream
Burnt caramel ice cream chock full of almonds, fudge flakes and bourbon caramel swirls. While the manufacturer utilizes real whiskey, the alcohol naturally cooks out during the baking process.

Graeter’s Brown Butter Bourbon Pecan Ice Cream
I had the chance to enjoy a dish of this on the 4th of July as a pre-game to the fireworks at an ice cream shop in Lexington, Kentucky. Bourbon glazed pecan pieces are swirled into brown butter bourbon ice cream creating a salty-sweet concoction that can take the heat off the hottest day.

Kerrygold Aged Cheddar with Irish Whiskey Cheese
Cheese? Whiskey? What a great pairing! Rich and creamy Irish Cheddar with the woody and earthy tastes of an Irish Whiskey. Unlike many items that merely have whiskey flavors, this has the real deal.
Dark Chocolate Bourbon Bread Pudding
I’ve shared this recipe before, but it is just incredibly tasty. Layers of sweet challah bread, eggs, cream, milk, and of course – bourbon – are blended together to form a poor man’s pudding.
