Bacon truly tastes great with just about anything, so it’s only natural that it would work well in a cocktail. Bars from Los Angeles to New York have started to feature bacon cocktails on their menus. Lucky patrons get the chance to sip bacon-infused spirits while nibbling on garnishes such as bacon wrapped fried olives. Many mixologists push the boundaries of bacon experimentation by smoking bacon prior to infusing the meat with a spirit. The result is a smoky bacon flavored spirit that tastes more like a savory indulgence than a classic cocktail. Home bacon enthusiasts do not have to feel left out of the craze. Here are some recipes that you can try at home that will take your love for bacon to the next level.
