    Two years ago, before the crazy bacon fad, I had a bacon margarita at The Fronterra Grill in Chicago (it has won restaurant of the year). It was made with bacon infused tequila. Then, it was a unique novelty. Now bacon infused drinks are popping up everywhere.

    The best, though, is hands down the BACON BLODDY MARY. Breakfast in a glass.

    My favorite is the PLT’s version of an old fashioned that uses bacon-infused bourbon and maple syrup instead of simple syrup….great stuff!
