Candied Bacon Maker’s Cocktail

The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo., created some delicious bacon-inspired cocktails for the colder months.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 2 Ounces bacon-infused Maker's Mark
  • 1 Ounce pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 Ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 Ounce applekorn liquor


Par-cook 1 slice applewood-smoked bacon in oven at 425 degrees. Dust bacon with sugar and reduce temperature to 375 degrees so the sugar dissolves and melts into a candy coating on the bacon slice. Mix all of the liquid ingredients in a shaker with plenty of ice. Shake vigorously and pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with candied bacon slice and lemon twist.

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.
