Firewater Friday - Bacon Infused Bourbon (method 1)
If you like bacon . . . and let's face it, who doesn't . . . and you like bourbon then you will love this infusion. I recently tried a bacon infused bourbon at a restaurant and was pleasantly surprised . . . I really, really liked it. So, I made my own. And mine is even better!
Bacon Infused Bourbon
3 or 4 Slices Smoked Bacon
16 Ounces Good Bourbon or Whiskey
Cook bacon in pan until crisp but not totally crispy.
Place bacon strips into a jar and fill with bourbon.
Place jar in the refrigerator for one week.
Put in the freezer for an hour to make sure all the fat solidifies.
Strain the solids out of the liquid by pouring through a sieve or a stocking lined funnel.
Pour into a bottle or jar.
For the most bacon flavor, serve at room temperature. Use as a mixer or a sipper.
