There is really only one cocktail that has been made in the history of the universe that is able to be drunk at breakfast.
It’s called a Bloody Mary. And it’s amazing. Scour the site and you’ll find a couple of recipes of varying degrees of complexity and strength. All of them will take kindly to a nice little bit of bacon grease in the mix and a charred rasher as a garnish. It makes prefect sense to combine these two pillars of the hangover community into one neat package.
If you’re a little more into your bacon than should be allowed by common sense or the heart foundation then we’ve got a little treat for you. A while ago, in New York, a hidden bar called PDT (Please Don’t Tell) starting popularising a particular infusion technique through one of their biggest selling drinks. They make a bacon Old Fashioned, but their infusion process is what really sets the drink apart.
You’ll need to sacrifice a bottle of booze to make this work and the amount you use is dependent solely on how much you like bacon. We recommend dark spirits for this; think a punchy rye or a big bourbon.
100mls (or more) bacon fat
1 bottle of bourbon
1 fine strainer
