substitutions for the bourbon?

These didn't last long. I wanted a light dessert to serve with lasagna, and this fit the bill. I really had to press the chopped nuts into the brownie balls, and they still lost a lot of the nuts. Overall, the flavor was very good, with the bourbon coming through very well.
