Tips & Tricks

Add a touch of sweetness and crunch by garnishing the cocktail with a piece of candied bacon. Simply bake bacon coated in brown sugar until crispy for a delectable topping.

Enhance the smoky profile by infusing the cocktail with a hint of smoke. You can achieve this by briefly smoking the glass with wood chips before pouring the drink.

Experiment with flavored bitters to add complexity and nuance to the cocktail. Try options like chocolate or coffee bitters to complement the bacon and maple flavors with hints of cocoa or espresso.
