This infused alcoholic whipped cream has a hint of bourbon that adds nuance and warmth as a dessert topping. Other booze can stand in (rum, kahlua, etc)!
So there’s whipped cream…and then there’s bourbonwhipped cream. Or insert your favorite booze in the blank: rum, kahlua, Irish cream: you get the idea! Yes, alcoholic whipped cream is a thing, and it’s just what you need to take your desserts to the next level. Infusing alcohol in whipped cream brings a nuance and warmth. Just think: a chocolate chip skillet cookie with bourbon whipped cream. Yes, it’s as good as it sounds! Alex and I were happy to have a new variation to add to all our favorite desserts (below is our very long list). Ready to get cooking?
Making alcoholic whipped cream is just like making the standard variety, but you’ll add 1 shot of booze to the cream and sugar before whipping it. If you’ve never made homemade whipped cream, you are in for a treat! When Alex and I first started cooking together, this homemade whipped cream recipe is one of the first things we made together. It tasted so REAL, so unlike the spray can version, that we vowed never to go back. (And we haven’t.)
It only takes a few minutes to whip up alcoholic whipped cream, and once you’ve made it you’ll never go back to store-bought stuff. Here are the basic steps for how to make it at home
1 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons alcohol, such as bourbon, rum, kahlua or Irish cream
- Place a bowl in the freezer to chill for a few minutes (if using a stand mixer, skip to the next step).
- Combine the cream, powdered sugar and alcohol in the chilled bowl.
- With a large whisk, whip the cream by moving the whisk back and forth quickly (try to whisk in a line instead of a circular motion) and whip to your desired thickness is reached. OR place the ingredients in the bowl of a KitchenAid stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, and mix on medium speed until the desired consistency is reached. You can use a looser cream for more of a “drizzle”, or a stiffer whipped cream for the traditional Cool Whip style texture. Tip: If you’re whipping by hand, try placing the bowl in the sink to whip the cream so that it is a bit lower than a table, which helps to make the whisking motion easier.
