Bacon and cocktails. Not the likliest of food and beverage combinations when eaten together, and especially odd when a recipe advocates you MIX THE TWO into one bacon-y alcoholic drink.
We know it sounds funky, but the result is delicious, juicy flavor.
Now, why would you want to cook 2 pounds of bacon for a cocktail? Because adding warm bacon grease to bourbon and letting it sit for 24 hours produces smoky, rich, bacon-flavored liquor. Strain and funnel the mixture into a bar bottle and add it to your favorite drinks that call for bourbon. Clever idea from Aaron Butler of Russell House Tavern.
