Once you let the alcohol cook out, you're left with a nice sweet sauce with just a hint of the bourbon flavor. Very nice, and VERY easy, too.

Great recipe! Cook a little less to keep a little more crispness to the carrots. I've also been using Crown Royal Maple to give it an extra kick.

Delicious! What a great way to get the children to eat carrots. Don't worry, the alcohol cooks out and you would never know it was in the recipe. I didn't have Bourbon so I used Southern Comfort. This is a keeper!

Excellent! I microwave the carrots and added Jameson's Irish for having good luck to find a recipe easy and very useful for holidays or any meal. Thank you!

Made these for Easter. At very end, just before I poured hot glaze over the carrots I added about 1/4 tsp of fresh grated ginger. After pouring over carrots I added some fine black pepper and a little salt. It was wonderful!! A new favorite way to cook carrots and SO easy. ( I used bagged baby carrots- I had a lot since they are so much cheaper at warehouse clubs in large quantities!)

This is pretty much the same way I make glazed carrots except for the bourbon. The bourbon makes a great addition and cooks off so the taste is very subtle. I added a pinch of sea salt and cracked pepper to give it more flavor. Orange zest would be a nice addition also for next time.
