Hi all, Tea Tuesday is back with a certain twist to it.


I’M INCLUDING COOKIES! This first week, I’ll teach you how to make Bourbon Balls, that are delicious spiked NO BAKE cookies. They’re quick and easy to make if you’re in a pinch for a party or just a sweet toothed, drunkard like me.

Included with this tea pairing is the lovely Organic Masala Chai from Tea Sparrow, and my last review. Chai I find is always really good with chocolate, because it adds spice to your tongue’s palate. I have quite a bit of tea to consume from last season’s Tea Tuesdays. I have two new teas from new vendors I’m going to pair up in the future posts, one including an authentic Japanese tea seller and a cute little shop that opened near the central library.

Anyway, to the bourbon balls!

Bourbon Balls (no bake bourbon cookies)

12 oz package vanilla wafers, finely crushed
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp cocoa
2 1/2 tbsp corn syrup
1/2 cup bourbon (I used Wild Turkey for this)
powdered sugar


1. Combine vanilla wafers, pecans, powdered sugar and cocoa in a bowl. Stir well.

2. Combine corn syrup and bourbon and stir well – make sure the two are combined and there’s no goop at the bottom.

3. Pour bourbon mix into dry ingredients.

4. Shape into 1-inch balls and roll in additional white powder sugar.

Viola! Drunken cookie madness!
