What screams manly (and I need to set a doctor’s appointment to assess my cholesterol levels) more than downing a plate of bacon while drinking a Manhattan? A Lot of things, but clearly on that list is combining the bacon and Manhattan into one fantastic cocktail.
2 oz. bacon infused bourbon
½ oz. sweet vermouth
½ oz. maple syrup
1 dash Angostura bitters
– combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice
– shake vigorously
– double strain into chilled cocktail glass
garnish: bacon or maraschino cherry
A great twist on a classic drink. So sit back, sip gulp, and watch the flannel chest hair grown in Mr. Manly Lumberjack.
