Key Lime Bourbon Turkey Glaze

From Kermit’s Kitchen

Yields 2 1/4 cups; less when using Vanilla extract

This recipe uses either bourbon or vanilla extract to achieve the same great flavor.  The glaze is excellent for a whole turkey, a turkey breast, chicken, or when roasting chicken pieces.

A half-cup of the glaze added to giblet gravy makes for great flavor and a memorable meal.


1-cup bourbon
1/3-cup Vanilla extract
2/3-cup Kermit’s Key Lime Syrup
2/3-cup ketchup
1/3-cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons finely minced fresh ginger
2 Tablespoons packed dark-brown sugar


Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
Brush the glaze over the turkey during the last 15 minutes of roasting.
