Bacon is the candy of meats. There isn’t a meal made worse by adding bacon. It’s a topping, a side, a staple, and I’ve even been known to dip it in chocolate (which by the way, if you’re going to do, make sure the bacon is extra crispy). It should come as no shock that I’m shoving it in a cocktail now too. A breakfast cocktail no less… So go on, let your curiosity get the best of you. This drink is different, no girly umbrella needed. Heavy on the salt and rye. This drink could put hair on your chest. It will certainly wake you up in the morning.

And possibly put you right back to bed.
