    Chef Regina V. Smith's Note:

    This recipe is from the May 1991 issue of Gourmet Magazine. The magazine suggests serving this as part of a southern inspired brunch. You will need to allow yourself enough time to make a sugar syrup and allow it to cool (You could do this the day before.) Allow the fruit to marinate in the bourbon mixture for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
