The Tipsy Pig
Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 2
Not only is the name of this drink awesome, but the flavor also follows suit. Combining bourbon with a homemade bacon & brown sugar sauce, are you serious? Sinful. You won’t find a better, more party-inspiring, bacon cocktail.
  • 3 oz. bourbon
  • 1 oz. Bacon Brown Sugar Simple Syrup (recipe follows)
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 5 drops bitters
  • 1 cup cooked chopped bacon
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • For Garnish:
  • Candied bacon if you wish (from Bacon Brown Sugar Simple Syrup),
  • Gourmet maraschino cherries, such as Luxardo
  1. For the Bacon Brown Sugar Simple Syrup:
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook the bacon, brown sugar and 1 cup of water until lightly boiling.
  3. Strain the candied bacon and reserve. Set aside and let cool.
  4. For the Finished Drink:
  5. In a shaker filled with ice, add the bourbon, Bacon Brown Sugar Simple Syrup, vermouth and bitters, and shake until well mixed.
  6. Place 1 large ice cube into 2 tumblers, pour the cocktail over the ice and garnish with a candied bacon piece and a maraschino cherry on a pick.
