The Pancake Breakfast Shot – Bacon & Pancakes in Liquid Form

October 21, 2009 6:12 am Published by 10 Comments


I heard a rumor that something amazing had been created at the Anchor Bar in Superior, Wisconsin along the south shore of Lake Superior. I was up in the area so I called up the creator (my buddy MattO) and asked him to introduce me to his little invention called The Pancacke Breakfast — a shot of alcohol that tastes like a plate of syrupy pancakes with a side of bacon.

The lovely ladies of the Anchor Bar, Shayla and Bobbie, were ready to introduce me to the new drink and MattO was right there to down the Pancake Breakfast Shot with me.

I watched the preparation of the Pancake Breakfast Shot and was able to jot down what I think is the secret forumla:

50% Butterscotch Liquor
50% Strawberry Schnapps
One tasty strip of bacon

Leave the bacon in the drink for a few mintues to let the flavor soak in and that’s it. I hear it can be served chilled or at room temperature — I tried the latter.

WOW! As soon at the Pancacke Breakfast Shot hit my tounge my eyes opened wide. I was pouring a syrupy pancacke into my mouth and munching on a piece of bacon. The Anchor Bar staff got a good chuckle as I stood there completely shocked. MattO has definitely invented a winner here. I give it an off-the-charts Smaste™ rating of 53.228!!!

People, you need to do one of two things and both of them involve getting up off your butt and heading out the door. 1) Get over to the Anchor Bar and have a Pancacke Breakfast Shot at the source or 2) Grab the incredients and make your own Pancake Breakfast Shot. Either way, please take some pictures, shoot some video, and write us to let us know what you think. We’ll be publishing a follow-up article in late November with your stories.

    Asked for bartenders choice at the anchor and had a pancake breakfast. The bacon was a surprise. The best shot ever. Bacon does make everything better.

    Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you’re stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there’s nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while there’s a peanut butter cup or an English toffee. But they’re gone too fast and the taste is… fleeting. So, you end up with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts. And if you’re desperate enough to eat those, all you got left is an empty box filled with useless brown paper wrappers.
