Cook:

Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • For the candied bacon:
  • 6 slices hickory-smoked bacon
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • For the cocktail:
  • 1 1/2 ounces aged rum
  • 3 1/2 ounces pear nectar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 to 3 drops old-fashioned bitters
  • Pinch of salt
Directions

Make the candied bacon: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Toss the bacon in a bowl with the brown sugar and place on a rack set on a rimmed baking sheet so the fat drips down. Bake until it's as crisp as you'd like, about 30 minutes. Let cool.

Make the cocktail: Combine the rum, pear nectar, lemon juice, bitters and salt in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and pour into a lowball glass. Garnish with a slice of candied bacon.
