Bacon Old Fashioned

The natural pairing of bacon and brunch gets the cocktail treatment in this savory drink from New Leaf Restaurant & Bar in New York City.

Ingredients

  • ½ ounce maple syrup
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 4 ounces bacon-infused bourbon
  • Ice
  • Orange twist, for garnish
  • Candied bacon strip, for garnish

Directions

Combine all ingredients except for garnishes with ice in a shaker glass. Stir, then strain and serve straight up or over ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a twist of orange and a strip of candied bacon.

Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
