giphy-7The trendiest food item since sliced bread has found its way into all corners of our life. Including the cocktail corner (see what we did there?). Bacon, the most scrumptious option on any breakfast menu, stole our hearts from the very first grease-filled bite, and we never looked back. Now, we’re raising the bar and putting it to the ultimate test: how well can it perform in our boozy drinks? (hint: the answer is really well)

Maple Bacon Old Fashioned Cocktail: (1 serving)
