Old Fashioned, but make it bacon. In this tantalizing cocktail, we “wash” Dewars 12 Year with leftover bacon fat for an unforgettable flavor experience. Plus, it comes with a snack on top!

Bacon Fat Whiskey
For the Drink
Brown Sugar Cube
In a pan over medium-high heat, pan-fry Bacon (6 slices) until crispy.
Remove bacon from the pan and set aside. Strain the bacon oil into a large jar through a fine strainer.
Add DEWAR'S® 12 (13.5 fl oz) to the jar. Cover with a lid and shake well. Allow it to infuse for 5-6 hours, then place in the freezer to chill the fat.
Pour the fat washed whiskey from the jar through a fine strainer.
In a rocks glass, add a Brown Sugar Cube (1/2), Angostura Bitters (2 dashes), and 2 fl oz of fat washed whiskey. Muddle with a muddler until sugar is dissolved.
Fill the glass with Ice (as needed).
Fill up the glass with the rest of the fat washed whiskey. Stir the drink with a bar spoon.
Place the bacon on top of the glass. Roast the bacon with a blowtorch and serve.
