The Bacon Sour.

For all of your bacon needs this Super Bowl Sunday, the Bacon Sour (made with Basil Hayden's bourbon) will do the trick.

Directions

For the drink

Combine bourbon, bacon-infused St-Germain, lemon juice, diluted maple syrup, bitters, and egg white into a mixing glass and shake vigorously with ice. Strain over fresh ice into a double old-fashioned glass. Garnish with an orange slice and a piece of the St-Germain-infused applewood-smoked bacon.

For the applewood bacon-infused St. Germain

Cook bacon in the oven until it is crispy on the outsides but still chewy in the center. Place bacon on paper towel to remove some of the rendering.

Place cooked bacon in a glass jar with two 750-milliliter bottles of St-Germain and allow it to infuse for 24 hours at room temperature. Remove bacon. Place liqueur in the freezer so renderings congeal and you can remove them. Strain through a fine mesh strainer and cheese cloth to remove as much rendering as possible. Repeat freezer step if needed and strain again. Refrigerate until ready for use.
