Serves: One delicious cocktail
This is my pig-centric take on a Manhattan cocktail. If you don't eat meat, don't fret. You can eliminate the bacon and rim the glass with sugar.
  • Bacon sugar (To make bacon sugar: cook some bacon and grind it in a coffee grinder or Cuisinart with equal parts brown sugar until it's a fine powder.)
  • A few brandied cherries (My favorite brand is Luxardo. They're a bit pricey but totally worth it!)
  • 3 shots of fine bourbon
  • A few dashes of delicious craft bitters
  • 1 orange
  • 1½ tablespoons of maple syrup
  1. Run your orange wedge along the rim of your glass and rim it with the bacon sugar.
  2. Put everything but the sugar and cherries in a shaker over ice and stir with a spoon.
  3. Pour into martini glass, add a few cherries and enjoy
