    Re: Bacon Bourbon Old Fashioned

    I usually do it with evan and nothing more expensive than that. If you don't do it right it just tastes like lye and not bacon. Keep some bacon around to garnish the old fashion with too. Remember flavor is mostly smell.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Re: Bacon Bourbon Old Fashioned

    How important is the ratio of bacon grease to bourbon? If I want to do 200-375mL as an experiment, should I just use the grease from a few strips of bacon?

    I do 1 750ml : 1 pack of bacon. The grease yield from 1 package without over cooking the bacon seems to be about right, any more was too lye tasting, less was ok too. I use maple bacon though in lue of sugar in the old fashion.

    * for a 375 I would suggest 8 strips I guess? I only do this between thanksgiving and christmas and cannot really remember how many strips of bacon to a pack.

    Re: Bacon Bourbon Old Fashioned

    Like the rest of you, I love bacon and bourbon. So I gave this a try and was very disappointed. I'll stick to eating my bacon from a plate and drinking my bourbon from a cup.


    Just had another idea -- instead of infusing the bourbon with bacon -- what about flavoring the bacon with bourbon? I may need to get me some pork belly and give that a shot.
