Hello 85 degrees tomorrow! It’s been too long. Like, 9 months too long. That’s…a baby’s worth. Sooooo, we should toast with bourbon blackberries & cardamom whipped cream! Yay!
It blows my mind how heavy cream goes from humble milk carton to luscious, fluffy, scrumptious dairy joy in a matter of minutes. Let’s spread the whipped cream love. (Ok, don’t be dirty…) Well maybe a little dirty with some bourbon.
This recipe is beyond easy, and a guaranteed crowd pleaser. It just can’t be served at a child’s birthday party…for obvious reasons, right? Oh hey, we came full circle with the baby thing.
