Benton’s Old Fashioned By , May 8, 2009 The name comes from Benton’s brand bacon because it was the type of smoky bacon used to make the fat-washed bourbon. The fat washing gives the bourbon a different mouth feel and a bacon after taste. The name comes from Benton’s brand bacon because it was the type of smoky bacon used to make the fat-washed bourbon. The fat washing gives the bourbon a different mouth feel and a bacon after taste. Ingredients: - Bacon Fat Washed Bourbon - Maple Syrup Instructions: Add fat-washed bourbon and syrup to a mixing glass and stir. Add bitters and stir again. Strain into a Rocks glass with fresh ice. Garnish with an orange twist or a piece of bacon. To make the bacon fat washed bourbon: Grill four slices of bacon to get 1 oz (30 mL) of bacon fat. Add warm bacon fat to 23 oz (690 mL) of bourbon. Shake well to emulsify the fat. Allow mixture to sit at room temperature for a day and then place in the freezer. The alcohol won’t freeze, but the fat will solidify and float to the top. Strain and filter the fat. I used the bourbon bottle to combine them, but found that the fat clogs the neck of the bottle and makes it hard to get the bourbon out. So, I suggest using a jar with a lid instead. Spirit Forward,Bacon,Fat washed,Bourbon,Old Fashioned,Maple,Smoky
