1 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon bourbon

1 Tablespoon apple cider (optional) or water

Directions for the Glaze

1.  Add the powdered sugar and apple cider (or water) and whisk to mix. Add the bourbon and mix well. If the glaze is too thick, add more cider or water. If it’s too thin, add more powdered sugar.
