Bacon-infused bourbon might sound a tad over the top, but the aromatic concoction is one of the most requested recipes at Restaurant August, John Besh’s fine dining spot in New Orleans. And for good reason. “The bacon really brings out a lot of the smoky, woodsy flavor of the bourbon,” says General Manager Jeff Gulotta. Fortunately, unlike some of August’s fruit-based infusions, this one is both easy to make and unaffected by the seasons. “Bacon is year round, thank goodness,” Gulotta jokes.
