Recipe: Turkey with Kentucky Bourbon Sauce

Turkey with Kentucky Bourbon Sauce

Serves 8


  • 1 (6-ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1/4 cup Wild Turkey 101
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh rosemary
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 whole boneless, skinless turkey breast (about 2 pounds; thaw it if frozen)
  • 1 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce

Place the orange juice, Wild Turkey 101, water, olive oil, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor and puree until the rosemary and garlic are chopped. Pour the mixture into a container and add the turkey breast. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.

Start the grill and heat it to medium heat. Place the turkey breast on the grill and cook it for 30-40 minutes, basting with leftover marinade several times. Reserve the remaining marinade. When the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 160 F, remove it from the grill and allow to rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, boil the reserved marinade with cranberry sauce in a small pot for 10 minutes so that the sauce thickens.

Slice the turkey breast and cover it with the sauce before serving.
