Everybody Loves Bacon

February 15, 2013

After happening across the bacon bourbon idea in Ann Arbor recently, noplasticshowers was eager to experiment at home.

Bacon bourbon is made as follows:
Cook 2 strips of thick cut bacon until ultra-crispy, then let it cool and dry. Add the bacon to a fifth of decent bourbon in large pieces. Bowman brothers small batch is a good selection for the bourbon. Steep for two or three hours or a round of Oysters Rockefeller, freeze overnight, strain out bacon and remove fat.

We will pretend that the first drink attempt did not happen. The second attempt, however, hit the mark.
