Over here at Bacon Social HQ we are currently trying to decide which bacon themed drinks to serve at next month’s event. Here are a few that stood out:

The Tipsy Pig Cocktail

Ingredients:

  • Ice
  • 3 ounces bourbon
  • 1 ounce Bacon Brown Sugar Simple Syrup, recipe follows
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 5 drops bitters
  • Candied bacon, from Bacon Brown Sugar Simple Syrup, recipe follows, for garnish
  • Gourmet maraschino cherries, such as Luxardo, for garnish

Bacon Brown Sugar Syrup:

  • 1 cup cooked chopped bacon

In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook the bacon, sugar and 1 cup water until lightly boiling. Strain the candied bacon and reserve. Set aside and let cool.

In a shaker filled with ice, add the bourbon, Bacon Brown Sugar Simple Syrup, vermouth and bitters and shake until well mixed. Place 1 large ice cube into 2 tumblers, pour the cocktail over the ice and garnish with a candied bacon piece and a maraschino cherry on a pick.
