  • About

The original Old Fashioned contained just whiskey, sugar, bitters, and water. No offense, but BarBacon’s version is so much better and more complex, with a triple dose of smoke from the bourbon, maple syrup, and bacon. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself.


  • 2 ounces (60 ml) bacon-infused bourbon
  • ½ ounce maple syrup
  • 4 dashes orange bitters
  • 4 dashes aromatic bitters
  • Ice cubes
  • Crisp cooked bacon strip
  • fresh rosemary sprig
  • Orange slice


Combine the bourbon, maple syrup, orange bitters, and aromatic bitters in a cocktail shaker and stir for a few seconds. Fill a glass with ice and pour the mixture over. Garnish with the bacon, rosemary, and orange slice.
