Candied Bacon Maker’s Cocktail Recipe


Candied Bacon Maker’s Cocktail

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


  • 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.
