Bourbon Spiced Nuts

The following Sunday will be the end of football season. We love our college football and the joke in our house is that I start watching NFL in January. Football season looked very different last year. even with our busy lifestyles, Aniket and I try to attend 1-2 games in person and get together with friends for major games. I have no idea how Superbowl Sunday will look this year, but I excited to have some fun treats and drinks lined up.

When it comes to watching football, we are like our appetizers and snacks. I am not a huge fan of one large meal so we like to munch on a variety of goodies. If you follow me on Instagram, you may already know that I am a fan of bourbon. With that intro, lets get into the recipe.



3 C of Unsalted Mixed Nuts (Dry Roasted)


1 Tbs of Maple Syrup

1 Tbs of Bourbon or Whiskey

1 Tbs of Olive Oil or Melted Vegan Butter


1/2 Tsp of Coarse Pink Salt

1/2 Tsp of Smoked Paprika

1/4 Tsp of Cumin

1/4 Tsp of Ground Cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F

  2. In a small bowl, whisky all the dry spices and the liquid ingredients.

  3. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and add the nuts. Pour the spiced syrup over the nuts and toss well

  4. Bake for 26 mins. At the halfway point, give the nuts a good toss.

  5. Let this coll completely before serving.


You can double the bourbon and paprika measurements if you like stronger flavors. I kept this measurements on the conservative side to make sure it was a crowd pleaser.

Hope you have a safe Superbowl Sunday! Make sure to follow me on Instagram for more game-day recipes.
