Ingredients

For the eggnog

  • 1 quart milk
  • 1 pint cream
  • 1 Teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 vanilla beans
  • 2 extra-large egg yolks
  • 1 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 Cup milk powder
  • 3 Tablespoons glucose powder
  • 3/4 Cups bourbon flambé

For the bacon-infused bourbon

  • One 750-milliliter bottle Maker’s Mark Bourbon
  • 6 Ounces liquid bacon fat

For the cocktail

  • 4 1/2 Cups eggnog
  • 2 Cups bacon-infused Maker’s Mark
  • 12 slices candied bacon

Directions

For the eggnog

Whisk the cold milk and milk powder together. Add the cream, nutmeg, and vanilla bean and bring to a boil. Whisk the glucose, sugar, and yolks together. Temper the milk into the yolks. Put back to the heat and cook to 85 degrees Celsius. Let the mixture sit overnight and add the bacon-infused bourbon.

 

For the bacon-infused bourbon

Using the sous vide method, combine the bourbon and liquid bacon fat into a sealable bag. Seal the bag and place in a warm water bath for a minimum of 2 hours to infuse. Remove the bag and keep in the freezer until ready for use. When infused bourbon is ready for use, pour the concoction through a cheesecloth to filter.

For the cocktail

Fill shaker with ice, add the contents, shake, and strain into chilled wine glasses and sprinkle with 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.
