Bourbon Caramel Sauce

Caramel sauce made with bourbon.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Servings 2 cups


  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup heavy cream room temperature
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp bourbon


  • Stir together the sugar and water together in a saucepan. Brush the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush.
  • Turn the stove to medium high heat. Cook until sugar becomes a golden amber color (it took me about 8 minutes). Turn the heat off and add cream while whisking. Once incorporated, add butter 1 tbsp at a time and cook over medium low heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Turn the heat off again. Stir in salt and bourbon. Cool down to room temperature, and then store in refrigerator. Caramel sauce will thicken once refrigerated.
