Father’s Day is Sunday~ you have just enough time to make him Bacon-Infused Bourbon. I’ve written before about one of Matt’s favorite drinks, “The Bacon Old Fashioned,” and I thought Father’s Day would be a great time to make another batch of bacon-infused bourbon for Matt’s dad (surprise, David!).
The bacon smelled so good, but it was so hot outside that I didn’t feel like drinking a Bacon Old Fashioned. I wanted something sweeter and lighter. So, I cut up some fresh peaches and soaked one batch overnight in some bacon bourbon and another batch in gin. I put a few slices in a champagne coupe and covered them with my favorite chilled pink champagne.
Voila, the perfect SOUTHERN COCKTAIL was born. We toasted to the end of the school year with some friends and had a lovely evening enjoying a comfortable southern evening in Florida.
Consider infusing some bourbon with bacon for your dad~ there’s a treat in it for you, too!
