Our friends over at Duke & Dame provided us with a lovely set of recipes featuring their smooth, salted caramel whiskey to enhance your plans for mom and keep the sugar intake at a minimum. The salted caramel whiskey with just 1 gram of sugar per serving can make a variety of cocktails perfect for your breakfast in bed, Mother’s Day brunch, moms who are fans of chocolate, or a post Mother’s Day dinner nightcap. Check them out below!
