I wanted to make something that evokes the time coffee is most important- That moment in the morning where your day shifts from "Ugh, I'ma go back to sleep" to "Heck yeah, let's do this." For me that moment is breakfast, and this drink is designed to evoke flavors one finds there. On your first sip the bacon wash leads, giving way to the maple syrup you'd find on your waffles and leaving behind a refreshing orange aftertaste. The coffee flavor is present throughout, as it should be.



 1.50 oz Bacon washed Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 1 oz Rye Whiskey
 0.75 oz Orange Juice
 0.50 oz Maple Syrup
 1 pinch Sea salt
 1 dash Orange Oil
 1 Egg white



Dry shake: Combine bacon washed coffee liquor, rye, maple syrup, orange juice, and egg white in a shaker without adding ice. Shake vigorously for 1-2 minutes


Wet shake: Add ice to contents in shaker, shake for 15 seconds or so until well chilled.


Pour contents into Coupe glass


Add finishing touches:
- sprinkle a generous pinch of sea salt onto the drink.
- Add a dash (or if you have a spray bottle, a single spritz) of orange oil on top.
- (Optional) float a short cinnamon stick on top to make it look classy.


To bacon wash Mr. Black Coffee Liquor:
- In a large bottle or mason jar, combine 2 oz (still liquid form) bacon fat to 375 mL (half the bottle) of Mr. Black Coffee Liquor.
- Shake vigorously for 15 seconds to combine
- Store in freezer overnight
- Strain contents through 2 layers of cheesecloth into new bottle.
