  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Fleur De Sel salt


  • Combine the sugar and water in a medium sauce pan. Heat over medium heat until the mixture begins to simmer. Swirl the pan but do not scrape the sides. Continue cooking until the caramel becomes a deep brown amber color. Remove from the heat and add the cream. Whisk taking care not to scrape the sides of the pan. Add the bourbon and salt and whisk until smooth. Cool and store in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to serve.
