For the Crust:

  • 2 cups (200g) graham cracker crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons (70g) unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling:

  • 24 ounces (680g) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (114g) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup (160g) caramel sauce, plus more for garnish


  1. Prepare the Crust: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter until well combined. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes, then cool.
  2. Make the Filling: Beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating each before adding the next. Stir in bourbon, vanilla extract, and sour cream. Gently fold in caramel sauce, creating a swirl effect.
  3. Bake the Cheesecake: Pour the filling over the cooled crust. Bake at 325°F (163°C) for 50-60 minutes, or until the edges are set but the center is slightly wobbly. Turn off the oven, open the door slightly, and let the cheesecake cool inside for 1 hour.
  4. Chill: Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  5. Serve: Drizzle with additional caramel sauce before serving. For an extra touch, sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt or garnish with whipped cream.
