How to Make Smokey Old Fashioned with Bacon Cocktail

This cocktail recipe is a twist on an old favourite. The Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail — one of the very oldest out there actually. It’s a timeless treat made from a few basic ingredients that most of us would have in the house. We’ve put our own Smoked & Cured spin on it by adding some Misty Gully Hickory Liquid Smoke and garnishing with some bacon (homemade using our Misty Gully Maple Bacon Cure of course). Give this cocktail recipe a try and let us know what you think!
