You don’t need to be at the Kentucky Derby to enjoy a mint julep. This take on the classic cocktail involves adding bacon fat to a bottle of Maker’s Mark and letting it sit for three days. The bacon fat creates a bacon-washed bourbon, which goes surprisingly well, especially with the minty flavor of the mint julep. This cocktail is so tasty, but the bourbon will sneak up on you, so you’ll want to sip on this one slowly. Seriously – it’s not a race.
