  • In a bowl, beat together the egg yolks; set aside.
  • In a saucepan, over medium heat, stir the milk and brown sugar until dissolved and comes to a simmer. Then, reduce the temperature to medium-low (don’t remove the saucepan).
  • Now, carefully drizzle a little bit of the hot milk mixture to temper the yolks. Next, while slowly stirring, drizzle the egg yolks back into the saucepan with milk mixture.
  • Once all added, cook stirring and scraping the bottom for one minute or until thickened.
  • Place an ice bath in a small bowl set over a larger one.
  • Next, in the medium bowl, apply the bourbon and heavy cream and bourbon and a mesh sieve set over top. Add the custard over the strainer and stir in the vanilla extract and salt.
  • Allow the ice cream base cool completely in the fridge for at least 1 hour (you can make the base a day ahead).
  • Churn in the ice cream maker according to its instructions. Freeze in an airtight container for at least 5 hours before serving.
