The popularity of Maple Bacon Donuts has been rising over the past few years. With a few awesome doughnut shops around the U.S. making their own versions of this delicious dessert; the Maple Bacon Donut has been receiving some well- deserved recognition and respect. Not just a novelty anymore, they’re quite the staple in the bacon lover’s world. Being such a hot commodity, this flavor combination has also been transmuted into a beer! Rogue’s Maple Bacon Doughnut Ale. This is such craziness, that we just had to follow suit!
So here, we bring you… the Maple Bacon Donut Shot! If you’re not a beer fan, or you’re not into enjoying a full cocktail of bacon, (which we really can’t understand why), we bring you a shorter version of a cocktail. It’s bacon and booze perfection.
.5 oz. of Bacon Infused Vodka
.5 oz. of Butterscotch Schnapps
.5 oz. of Bailey’s or Irish Cream
Teaspoon (or more) of Maple Syrup (Grade B or Dark Amber preferred)
Get a shot glass.
First pour in the bacon infused vodka. Next, the Butterscotch Schnapps and then add the Irish Cream. Finally, with the Maple Syrup, make sure you pour directly through the middle to ensure that the sides of the glass stay clean of syrup. Garnish with some bacon if you would like!
Now drink up! Then drink four more and see how you feel tomorrow. Salute!
