Name your favorite: National Fajita Day. National Margarita Day. National Quinoa Day. (OK, I don’t know there is one of those, but the rule holds.)
It’s not a bad thing, really; it lets people focus on the things they wanna focus on and perhaps remind others they should focus on it to. And the fun, sometimes, is finding a way to expand on [It] Day to another.
Which is what Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House has done with this concoction, infusing National Bacon Day (Aug. 20!) into a cocktail format. We asked them to share the recipe; here it is:
4 oz. Pecan-Infused Smoked Maple Knob Creek Bourbon.
3 dashes Fee Brothers Whiskey-Barrel Aged Bitters
1/2 slice cooked and candied bacon.
Making it: Pour liquid ingredients into a pint glass, fill with ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with bacon.
