    Smile Why haven't I done this before?

    I just sat with OWA in one hand, and bacon strips in the other. My wife just looked at me, smiled, and said "you are a happy man aren't you?". This could become a tradition.

    I have bacon infused OWA that makes a mighty cocktail.

    Well played, sir. Well played
    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    Followed some directions on the web.

    Fried up some bacon, inserted into bourbon. Let sit overnight. Placed into freezer for a few hours, then filtered out fat with cheese cloth.

    I made some bacon infused bourbon (ironically - OWA as well!) but it came out super salty (although undeniably bacon-y). Even after filtering, had a very greasy mouthfeel. Maybe I used too much bacon (which might be the first time I've ever said "too much bacon").

    Now to try it with Candied Bacon and WLW... take it to the next level!
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Bacon flavored bourbon.

    That just oozes awesomeness.
