Bourbon Sweet Potato Mash by cucinagirl

1 large sweet potato (at least 1 lb) 
3/4 tsp salt 
3 Tbsp whole milk 
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper 
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper 
scant 1 Tbsp molasses 
2-3 Tbsp butter 
scant 1 Tbsp bourbon 

Peel the potato and cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Place in a pot with cold water (enough to cover the potato by 1 to 2 inches) and about 1/2 tsp salt. Boil for 5-7 minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain. Return to pot and cook out any remaining moisture over medium heat for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Mash potatoes. 

Combine remaining ingredients (including remaining 1/4 tsp salt) in a small saucepan and warm over medium heat until butter is melted and ingredients are thoroughly combined. Add mixture to potatoes and stir to combine. Adjust seasoning to taste.
