Drink Inc.: Sweet & Savory Pork Cocktails

I used have a crazy fascination for regular pork based bacon, but my pork days for the most part are over. HOWEVER, I know A LOT of people will really love this cocktail because it provides two guilty pleasures: bacon and alcohol! Honestly, if they smothered some turkey bacon in some good Crown Royal with a hint of maple syrup on the, that would be some goodness right there. MMMMMMMMM. At any rate, peep the recipes for this clip. Enjoy!

Once again shoutout to Dan and Steve for really immersing the cooking and food world with the cocktail world. They've really settled on an interesting niche that will take them far!
