  1. Combine ingredients in cocktail shaker with some ice. Shake a bit to combine ingredients. Strain into tall glass filled with ice. Garnish with your favorite garnishes.


*to make a swirled bacon stick, wrap bacon around a chopstick or metal straw and bake in 375 degree oven until bacon is cooked. Remove to paper towel and let cool a bit then remove chopstick/straw.  You could also just twist the bacon without a chopstick/straw but it will not be as tight, which is ok.

or….just cook a piece of bacon the regular way and toss it in the drink!
