Irish Whiskey Caramel Sauce
(printable recipe)

1 cup sugar
water to just cover the sugar and the bottom of the pan
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup Irish Whiskey

Place sugar into a medium saucepan. Shake the pan to distribute the sugar evenly and add just enough water to cover the sugar.

Place saucepan on stovetop and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, watching closely and swirling the pan occasionally.  Remove from heat when the sugar mixture begins to color to a dark amber color, about 5-7 minutes.

Slowly whisk the cream and the Irish Whiskey into the caramelized sugar, mixing until smooth.

It took me three tries to get this right. But when I did, this was fabulous! My friends have named this "Heaven in a Jar" and "Semi-liquid Crack with Jameson". I did add a tablespoon of butter and a pinch of salt to the batch I made this morning and it just put it right over the top.

Tried this. I too added a bit of salt and some butter. Made all the difference. Was awesome. Took a little longer on the stove then than I thought... but was totally worth it.
