Cheers to Bourbon

Peg Leg Porker Bourbon Shares the Recipe for its Popular Pork & Stormy Cocktail

Bacon-Washed Bourbon

4 strips bacon

8 oz. Peg Leg Porker Bourbon 

1 tsp. pure cane syrup 


Ice cubes or shards

2 oz. Peg Leg Porker Bourbon 

3 oz. ginger beer

Lime wedge, for garnish

Bacon-Washed Bourbon: Fry the bacon in a cast-iron skillet until crispy. Combine 2 Tbsp. of the bacon grease and the bourbon in a plastic container with a lid (eat the bacon). Shake thoroughly and freeze until the fat hardens, about 1 hour. Remove from the freezer and strain the fat from the bourbon; discard the fat. Add the cane syrup to the bourbon and mix well. Decant into a covered glass jar or bottle and store in the refrigerator.

Cocktail: Fill a cocktail glass with ice. Add the bourbon, top with the ginger beer, and stir. Add a teaspoon of the bacon-washed bourbon to the top of the drink. Garnish with a lime wedge.
