Bourbon Molasses Vinaigrette

Bourbon and molasses, does it get any better than this? I think not! Serve over tender greens (such as Bibb lettuce) with crisp vegetables. I suggest using only the best bourbon money can buy: Kentucky bourbon, of course!

4 large garlic cloves
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
6 tablespoons molasses
3 tablespoons bourbon
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
Juice of one lemon
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

In a blender or food processor, puree the garlic, mustard, molasses, bourbon, vinegar, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Once the mixture is smooth, slowly drizzle in the olive oil while still blending to emulsify the dressing.
