When Bacon Met Bourbon. A Love Story

Last time I was in Nashville I made a stop at the Patterson House. It was there I had one of the truly best cocktails to grace my lips, a Bacon Infused Old Fashion. This was something I needed to share with the world. Looking on-line I found a receipt that seems to mirror what I had at the Patterson House. So carnivores, when it’s time to sit back and have those after Thanksgiving drinks why not impress the family with this incredible cocktail.

1/4 ounce Grade B maple syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Twist of orange
