I can talk all day about my favorite beer and wines, but I know just about diddly when it comes to hard stuff. I have really nice steaks that I was going to make for dinner tonight and need cognac or brandy for the steak au poivre recipe. I really don't want to face a liquor store on NYE, but I also don't want to ruin my $$$ (they're free range, organic, kneaded with a thousand butterfly wings, etc. ) steaks.
Do you think I can sub the Crown Royal we happen to have on hand? I think that's whisky, right?
