As I posted yesterday in Cheesy Sausage Balls, we had some friends over for tapas last weekend. One of the things I wanted to do was make a signature, keto friendly cocktail. What’s more keto than Bourbon and Bacon?
Here is resulting cocktail! I used a method called fat-washing to infuse the bourbon with a bacon flavor and put a piece of bacon into the cup.
I made the mistake of putting the bourbon and bacon grease bacon into the container. If I were you, I would leave it in the measuring cup so it is easier to separate out. The next step is to discard the fat layer and filter out the fat. I used a coffee filter.
For garnishment cook some bacon until crisp. I tried to cut a slit into the edge of it to place it on the edge of the glass but it didn’t hold. I ended up just placing it in the glass but I think it looked good!
Everyone really enjoyed the cocktails and I think they had a really good keto twist!
