Looking to add a unique twist to your bourbon tasting night? Try pairing bourbon with dessert for a memorable experience. Ice cream and pie, especially those with high-fat content, complement the flavors of bourbon well. Vanilla ice cream is the best choice, as it doesn't overpower the bourbon. Fruit pies like peach and apple, as well as pumpkin and pecan pies, are great options to pair with bourbon. Pecan pie and vanilla ice cream topped with bourbon is a delicious combination to try.
