Bacon Old Fashioned
The ultimate cocktail for every meal! Why have a mimosa or bloody mary when bacon could be in every component of brunch. Beer for lunch? Who needs it when your cocktail pairs perfectly with your bacon burger. Wine for dinner? Not when you're having a bacon wrapped filet and need the perfect drink to match.
This cocktail has always been a classic but recently regained popularity from the show Mad Men and overall resurgence of American whiskey. The Old Fashioned is a great introduction into spirit-forward classic cocktails and mixology techniques. Tap into your inner Don Draper and give it a try.
An update to the classic Bees Knees cocktail, the Gold Rush substitutes bourbon for gin. Created in NYC's Milk and Honey Bar in the early 2000's, this cocktail is the perfect balance of sweet and tart, good for all seasons.
