Bourbon on your brownies?! Oh yes please

I will be honest with you, this is not the prettiest brownies you will ever see but come on, who doesn't like brownies with a little bit of alcohol in it. I don't care if it does not look pretty, if you say it's spiked then I'm goooood to go… Who's with me?!?

I've always been a fan of dessert with alcohol, I think they are a perfect match, just like coffee and chocolate, so why not combine everything and make a big chunk of brownie out of it.
