Serve in a

Rocks glass

Garnish:

Orange twist

How to make:

STIR bourbon and maple syrup in base of mixing glass until syrup dissolves. Add bitters and ice and STIR again. Strain into ice-filled glass.

*To make the fat washed bourbon: Grill 4 slices of bacon to obtain 30ml/1oz of warm fat (originally Benton's bacon was used but any extra-smoky bacon will suffice) and pour this into a 70cl of bourbon (in a 75cl bottle). Leave to infuse at room temperature for a day before placing bottle in a freezer to solidify the fat. Then clarify the bourbon by straining into a clean bottle.

2 fl oz Bourbon whiskey (bacon fat washed)
1/4 fl oz Maple syrup
2 dash Angostura Aromatic Bitters
