  • A little effort

This cocktail recipe from LCC Shoreditch uses fat-washed (bacon-infused) Jack Daniel's, first done in New York in the 90s for a Benton's Old Fashioned. Mix that with maple syrup and you've got breakfast in a glass.

  • bacon-infused Jack Daniel’s 50ml (see below)
  • lemon juice 15ml
  • maple syrup 15ml
  • Regans’ orange bitters 2 dashes
  • egg white 1
  • Haribo fried egg 1
  • crisp bacon 1 rasher
  • Jack Daniel’s 1 bottle
  • smoky bacon 6 rashers


  • Step 1

    Cook the bacon, then add the fatty juice to 1 bottle of Jack Daniel’s in a vessel. Put it in the freezer overnight so that the fat rises to the top and freezes. Strain the liquid until it is clear, then pour back into the bottle.

  • Step 2

    Put first 5 ingredients into a shaker, add 1 piece of ice and shake. Fill the tin with ice and shake hard. Strain into a coupette and garnish with bacon and a Haribo egg.
