    1. Something involving Colonel Newsom's Kentucky ham.

          Ham is ALWAYS a good idea. It should be required eating on a regular basis.

      1. I am assuming you are having tidbits and not a dinner. So I would suggest an antipasto platter, olives, nuts (salty and/or spicy, or both!).

        Of course any pecan sweets would be good. Small pecan cookies bars perhaps?

        1. something with bacon to compliment the subtle smokiness of the bourbon

            Hmm. Maple bacon candy, perhaps?

          2. think Southern, since that's where Bourbon is born: Sweet potato fritters and/or beignets, andouille sausage skewers, boudin noir, spicy boiled shrimp, crawfish boulettes (spicy fried crawfish balls bound with egg, panko, trinity etc), buttermilk fried chicken nuggets, just about anything dipped in remoulade or ravigote sauce... crap this reminds me I think I'm out of bourbon...Oh and spicy pickled okra and string beans ROCK.
