Turkey gravy is a delicious and rich addition to any meal, and it's even better when bourbon is added to the mix. Why not make a special bourbon turkey gravy for Dad this Father's Day?
The alcohol mostly evaporates during the cooking process, leaving behind a delicious and slightly boozy flavor that will make dad's day. To make this dish even more special, use dad's favorite bourbon in the recipe. He'll be sure to appreciate the gesture - and the delicious gravy.
Remove the neck; coarsely chop the giblets and return them to the roasting pan.
Place the pan on the stove between two burners (if using a disposable roasting pan, scrape contents into a medium saucepan).
Bring drippings to a boil over medium-high heat; cook, scraping up browned bits until liquid is brown and syrupy, 8 to 10 minutes (if the bottom of the pan is about to scorch, lower heat).
Cook, constantly stirring, until the wine becomes very syrupy, 8 to 10 minutes.
Cook and constantly stir for about 1 minute until the flour is incorporated.
Add broth in stages, followed by 2 cups of water. Bring to a simmer; cook, occasionally stirring, until gravy reaches desired thickness, about 5 minutes.
