High on the Hog

"This frozen adult beverage pairs that salty meatiness of bacon with ginger, maple and bourbon for a quenching ginger-ale slosh."

Serves: 4

27 ounces ginger ale

2 ounces Dolin Dry Vermouth de Chambéry

2 ¾ ounces Cabin Fever Maple Flavored Whisky

8 ¼ ounces Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey


Glass: Up & Down

Garnish: strip of crispy bacon

Combine. Place the ingredients in a medium-size, metal bowl and stir.

Freeze. Pour the liquid into a large freezer bag and place it in the freezer until frozen, approximately 4 hours. Alternatively, pour the liquid into an ice cream maker and proceed per the manufacturer’s instructions.

Serve. When you’re ready to serve, massage the freezer bag by hand until it’s a wet, slushy consistency. If it’s not breaking up, run the bag quickly under hot water and massage some more. Pour into glasses and garnish each with a crispy bacon strip.
