Simmer sugar and water on medium heat, swirling pan NOT stirring for about 15 minutes or until a deep amber color is reached. Watch closely as not to let it burn.
Turn off burner and remove from heat and slowly add cream while stirring.
Add pinch of salt and bourbon and place back on still-warm burner for another minute while stirring.
Transfer to a heat-safe dish or bottle and let cool. Store covered in the refrigerator and bring to room temp or heat in a warm water bath before serving. You can also just simply microwave the jar for 30 seconds before each use without affecting the texture or flavor.
*We used Evan Williams Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, but use whatever high-quality bourbon you have. *Nutrition information is a rough estimate.
