Though not original to us, this wonderful cocktail was most certainly created by the genius who first thought to drip bacon fat into bourbon. Watch our video on the process, make your own bacon fat washed bourbon, and then check out a few of the cocktails which are original to us – like the Bacon Boulevardier and the mind-blowing Hog Wallow. Bacon and maple syrup are a great combination and that is certainly manifest in this tasty cocktail. The Bacon Infused Bourbon adds a pleasant, yet subtle, smoky bacon flavor. Replacing the sugar, in a classic Old Fashioned, with maple syrup adds a delicate, sweet flavor and really hits home on the theme of this drink. Watch our Cocktail College course on the classic Old Fashioned and learn about still other variations on that wonderful classic. Cheers!
