The Kentucky Bourbon hot dogs are the perfect combination for someone who likes bourbon whiskey and has a craving for some nibbles. Since you do not have a restaurant or café in your house you have to settle for that pack of hotdogs (add Amazon.com link) sitting in the refrigerator. So as you slowly sober up from the couple of beers and shots of whiskey you were sampling, you decide to either microwave or boil the hot dogs. It’s probably not a good idea to try and grill them…beer, whiskey and flames are not known for being a great combination whilst under the influence!
As you read over the instructions for prepping the hot dogs, you look up and think you hear the Maker’s Mark bottle whispering the words…” I’m all alone and I need someone to cherish me.” You look around and realize that there is only you in the room but you notice that the bottle has moved closer to you. You are wondering who is playing tricks on you as you open the package of hot dogs. You are curious to know but you finally realize that too many indulgences involving whiskey can lead to the booze, trash talking and you getting the blame for your actions and those of others that you cannot see! That darned Maker’s Mark!!!!
