Mixing sweet and savory continues to be a solid cocktail choice. An easy way to do that is to use a savory that already blends perfectly with sweet: bacon. Whether you’re used to having bacon with pancakes or maple infused bacon, something about the salty fattiness of bacon makes it tastes delightful with sugar. After Instagram research, I found that using it to finish off a cocktail is not only popular here, but all around the world. From New York, to Honolulu, Amsterdam, and all the way to Accra, drink connoisseurs are topping their cocktails with bacon. Here are our favorite bacon cocktails on instagram.
