Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat; stir in brown sugar. Bring to a boil, cook for 2 to 4 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture starts to thicken and caramelize.
Remove from heat, stir in cream, bourbon and half of vanilla extract. Return to stovetop; return to boil. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened, caramelized and syrupy.
Meanwhile, heat milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat, cook, stirring often for 3 to 5 minutes or until steaming. Stir in remaining vanilla extract. Whisk with frother or hand blender until frothy. *Alternatively, microwave milk on high in a micro-wave safe cup for 60 to 90 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds or until steaming.

Substitute whiskey, rye or rum for bourbon.
