Ingredients

2 ounces Kentucky bourbon

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon honey

Pinch sea salt

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 

8 ounces sliced bacon

4 slices country white bread 

Japanese mayonnaise, for spreading

4 crisp iceberg lettuce leaves, torn into pieces

Directions

Special equipment:
Eight 4-inch wooden skewers
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the bourbon, oil, vinegar, honey and a pinch of sea salt. Add the tomatoes and toss to coat. Let sit for at least 30 minutes to marinate.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Spread the bacon on the prepared baking sheet and bake until crispy, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels, then break into large pieces.
  3. Using a 1 1/2-inch round pastry cutter, cut 6 circles out of a slice of bread. Spread some mayo on a bread round, then top with two pieces bacon, some lettuce, tomato half, another bread round, more mayo, bacon, tomato, lettuce and then, finally, another bread round. Skewer with a 4-inch wooden skewer. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and serve. Make sure your guests shoot it all in one big boy bite.
