1 tablespoon olive oil
dash hot pepper sauce
dash Worcestershire sauce
-- Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons Kentucky bourbon


  1. Soften cheeses and butter.  Mix well.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, stirring in enough bourbon to make a spreadable paste.
  3. Refrigerate 24 hours.
  4. Serve with crackers.  Add more bourbon if spread appears too stiff.
