4 large sweet potatoes (about 3 pounds)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup Bulleit® Bourbon
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 375°. Place sweet potatoes on a parchment-lined baking sheet; pierce each several times with a fork. Bake until very tender when pierced with a paring knife, about 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool slightly.
Cut open potatoes, and scoop flesh into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add butter, maple syrup and Bourbon, and beat until smooth.
Season with salt and pepper.
TIP: If you want to dress to impress, save the potato skins and scoop the mashed potatoes back inside before you serve them. That way your potatoes will be wearing their dinner jackets.
