About this Cocktail

My take on the Iberian Old Fashioned from The Iberian Pig in Decatur, GA

  • Three parts bacon infused whiskey
  • One part grade b maple syrup
  • 2 - 4 dashes of Angostura
  • Lemon and Orange Peel

Cook 5 pieces of thick cut and hickory smoked bacon until burned in order to generate 1 oz. of grease. Let grease cool slightly and pour grease and drippings into whiskey and let sit at room temperature for 4-6 hours. Place whiskey in freezer for another two hours. Strain whiskey through a coffee filter back into bottle or other receptacle for pouring.

    Tried this after visiting Iberian Pig last weekend. The bacon flavor is stronger than I expected. I went with Redemption Rye since I was infusing. Might choose a smoother whiskey next time. Iberian Pig has a sweeter mix. Might be cutting with simple syrup or more maple. Great start though, thanks for sharing
