12 slices bacon

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

1 tablespoon cayenne pepper


Special equipment:
24 wooden cocktail skewers
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Put a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Cut the bacon slices in half. Fold each half of the bacon in an "S" pattern upon itself a few times and thread each one onto a wooden skewer.
  3. Place the bacon skewers on the prepared wire rack.
  4. Combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle half of the sugar mixture on the bacon skewers.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip the skewers and sprinkle on some more of the sugar mixture. Cook for 20 minutes more.
  6. Remove the bacon skewers from the oven and flip them over. Taste one skewer. If desired, sprinkle a small amount of the remaining spice mixture on the bacon skewers.
  7. Serve the skewers just as they are or add on garnishes, such as olives and cherry tomatoes, before popping them in your cocktail!
