Whiskey Sauce

Whiskey Sauce

This is a great base whiskey sauce. Feel free to spice it up by adding either Thyme or Tarragon, or some other spice. If you’d rather prefer a bourbon sauce, here’s the recipe.

Servings 4
Cook Time 20 minutes


  • 2 shallots
  • 2 tbsp liquid beef stock
  • 0.85 cups cooking cream
  • 5 oz good whiskey
  • 1 pinch brown sugar
  • salt to taste


  • Chop the shallots. Fry them in a good amount of butter.
  • Add the beef stock and whiskey. Let it simmer and reduce to about a fourth of the original amount.
  • Add the cream and some brown sugar (and salt of course), and simmer another 10 minutes.
  • Mix it in a blender to a smooth sauce. Thicken the sauce a bit if you like with corn starch.
