Dish: Traditional Lemon Meringue Pie with Jim Beam Bourbon
Pairing Logic: Since the pie in itself has a mélange of textures we induced the flavor of the whiskey to enhance the sweetness to complement the sourness of the lemon juice and zest. The tart andcreamy lemon custard filling with whiskey is topped with mile-high billowy meringue. Themagic of that whipped meringue topping that went into the oven like soft cloudy pillows andcame out firm and golden brown. The alcohol does not evaporate much as the custard is covered with meringue which can be torched as well. So, there is a burst of flavors as one tastes the pie.
